Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home did not receive any favorable grades. In particular, we gave it an F in the category of nursing. The nursing grade weighs many subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This place provided 2.6 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is below average. Lastly, we also looked at some quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home was above average in two of the areas we focus on, with solid marks for avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. These metrics are generally good indicators of the quality of nursing care provided.

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. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 9 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was short-term care, in which this facility was given an F. Short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 43.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home received a very poor grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 60.714287 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.28 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
