Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place offered only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development is the F this facility received in the area of long-term care. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 97.333336 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. With a score in this range for this area, we were not stunned to learn this facility was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we focus on. In fact, it provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
