Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was rock bottom, it actually didn't perform as poorly in nursing. We awarded it a B- for that category. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't fare terribly in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of C in that area, which happens to be another one of its higher grades. Our long-term care grade assesses a nursing home's personal care rather than the highly skilled therapy and healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 55.614975 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second worse score is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a well below average grade. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our last category of inspections, this nursing home received a terrible score. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home had several deficiencies in categories G through L, which are among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by 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.
