Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. When computing a facility's nursing score, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 3.7 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. This nursing home performed admirably in this area. Avoiding serious falls is often a reliable indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be prevented if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home also didn't grade out terribly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- in that category, which turned out to be among its better grades. Long-term care ratings are based on a nursing home's volume of nursing care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 81.090096 percent of its patients. This is significantly lower than the national average. The last statistic we looked at was the nursing home's hospitalization rate. Here we found that this facility had a relatively high 2.81 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Neither its vaccination record nor its hospitalization rate were strengths for this place in this area.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this place's worst category grades was a lowly F for its inspection score. Typically, this indicates we found some red flags on the nursing home's government inspections. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection grade. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by CMS 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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored was short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze 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 solid measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it offered less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 23 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
