Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Even though this facility's overall grade was terrible, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. We gave it a C for this category. When calculating our nursing ratings, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we awarded this facility a C for its long-term care grade, which really isn't too bad of a score. Our long-term care scores are based on the facility's volume of nursing services. This means a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. We were unable to find a few metrics in computing this nursing home's long-term care score, so this may not be as accurate as our other category scores.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. Our short-term care grades are crucial for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech 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. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is inspections. This facility did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we had to give it an F here. When a facility has this poor of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 7 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
