Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we gave this facility an abysmal overall score, we gave it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. When calculating our nursing scores, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection score. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection grade. We would scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This facility had one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies identified by the government inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to residents. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this nursing home an F in the category of short-term care. Short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Based on its poor score in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility offers far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed was long-term care. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.57651 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
