Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home did not receive any favorable grades. In particular, we gave it an F in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 79.6875 percent of its residents. Lastly, we looked at the nursing home's number of hospitalizations. We found that this facility fared poorly with 2.77 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, this statistic is nearly double the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For nursing homes with poor inspection ratings, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also need to point out that this place was assessed large government fines recently of more than $50,000. This typically suggests that CMS inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of failed health inspections.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home offered just 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we graded is short-term care, in which this facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade here as well. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Short-term care grades are typically used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 38 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
