Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Even though this nursing home's overall grade was terrible, it didn't perform as poorly in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a C for that area. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of the nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility didn't perform horribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it a C for that category. Other aspects of its profile were the source of this facility's abysmal overall score. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care score. This is not a very good score. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom grade. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is often a meaningful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. With its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
