Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This nursing home received terrible ratings in our analysis. Perhaps most alarmingly, it received an F for its inspection grade. Typically, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspections. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Sadly, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated just 85.824745 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue was the F this nursing home was given in the category of short-term care. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded is nursing. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal score. Our nursing score considers many subcategories. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
