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. The nursing rating analyzes a handful of factors, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, although this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care rating, which is actually one of its more respectable category grades. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its weak grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover this place offers significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We gave it a grade of just D for our inspections rating. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines amounting to over $100,000. This typically suggests that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we graded was long-term care, in which this facility was given an abysmal grade in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 85.89212 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
