Facility Inspections

Grade: C

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's second most respectable category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is typically a fair assessment of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a grade this poor in this area, we weren't surprised to find this place was below average in many staffing figures we looked at. The nursing home supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 6.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing grades are mostly tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded was long-term care, where this facility received a very poor grade in this area as well. We gave it an F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 90.08264 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
