Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this nursing home a terrible overall score, we gave it a B- for short-term care. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an C. When determining a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses are seeing residents as well as the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This facility received very poor government inspections in recent years, causing us to give them a lowly F for inspections. An F in this category is usually a signal that there were red flags on the nursing home's inspections. With nursing homes that received this poor of an inspection grade, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded was long-term care. It received an F for this category, which is a poor grade. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 97.58454 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
