Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we graded this nursing home very poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B- in this category. There are quite a few subcategories included in this area. Most of the factors are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this nursing home earned a reasonably solid short-term care rating in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in that category. With our short-term care grade, we try to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess a facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't rate too badly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C in that area, which ended up being among its higher scores. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.166664 percent of its patients. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this facility fared very poorly. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. When a facility has this bad of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home had 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
