Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

In addition to receiving a poor overall grade, we also gave this facility poor grades in our categories. In fact, it received a D for its short-term care score, which was its best category. Short-term care grades are typically used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. With a score in this range in this area, we were not stunned to learn this nursing home was well below average in the two key staffing figures we looked at. In fact, it provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care score and that actually ended up being its second best category. Nursing homes that don't score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 88.48485 percent of its patients. This is pretty significantly less than what we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.91 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. There are numerous subcategories within this area. Many of these subcategories are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular facility averaged a meager 2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is far below the national average. On top of its subpar nursing hours, this place received poor marks in several of the quality-based metrics we considered in computing our nursing ratings. We found that more of this facility's patients experienced falls which led to major injury. We would argue that many falls could likely be prevented with better nursing care. This statistic contributed to this nursing home receiving a poor nursing score.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to patients. Another red flag is that CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
