Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Even though we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that category. With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an D. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses at the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses worked with patients, in computing our grade in this area. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We would scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by inspectors had potential to create actual harm to residents. 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is long-term care, where this facility was given a rock bottom score in this area as well. It received a lowly F in this category, which is definitely a major concern. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
