Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Sadly, we gave this place some really poor category grades. This includes an F for its inspection score. This is a particularly important category. Scores in this range often point to some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. When a facility has this poor of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to resident health or safety. 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

We also wanted to note that this nursing home was given an F for its long-term care grade. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 71.5 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing grade is based on many factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was short-term care. It received an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is often a solid measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Based on its score in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
