Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, we did not have any positive things to say about this nursing home's overall score or its category grades. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 99.57265 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses worked with patients, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development was the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more critical for residents requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our final category of inspections, this facility received an F here. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. Tragically, this nursing home was hit with one category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates widespread threats to resident safety or health. This type of deficiency is very damaging to a nursing home's inspection grade. Lastly, we also want to point out that this facility received large government fines in recent years totaling more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a facility's poor track record has been an issue for several years.
