Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facilities grades were terrible across the board. In particular, we wanted to draw your attention to its poor short-term care grade where it received an F. Short-term care grades are often used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. With its abysmal rating in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this facility earned an F for its inspection score. This is a very important category. Grades in this range typically point to some red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that the government inspectors found a deficiency which places resident safety or health in imminent danger. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines in recent years totaling more than $100,000. This usually means that a facility'spoor performance has been an issue for several years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we rated is long-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 82.8125 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
