Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provided just 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home also didn't perform poorly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a B- in that area, which happens to be among its higher scores. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development is the F this facility received in the area of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.206276 percent of its residents, which is an above average statistic. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our final category of inspections, this nursing home received an abysmal grade. For places with poor inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility had 7 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
