Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this nursing home extremely poorly overall, it received a better long-term care rating this year. We gave it a B- in that category, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we were able to find for this facility. Long-term care grades are commonly used to measure a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 98.7013 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our nursing grade is primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This number is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second worse score is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. In the area of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Given its weak rating in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home provides substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home had 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
