Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

While we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable nursing grade this year. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this area, which was much better than its overall grade. Our nursing score includes many factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second highest category ended up being its short-term care score, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are arguably most meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to draw your attention to this facility's inspection grade where it received an F. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by CMS had the potential to create actual harm to residents. Finally, we also need to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently totaling more than $100,000. This usually signifies that a nursing home's poor performance spanned more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth category, this facility really didn't perform very well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 96.875 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
