Facility Inspections

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another red flag is that CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a C for its short-term care grade, which really isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the fourth area, this nursing home didn't perform very well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 82.333336 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
