Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. Our nursing score weighs several datapoints, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this facility's higher category grades came in the area of short-term care. This proved to be its second most favorable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. In forming these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility earned mediocre government inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded was long-term care, in which this facility received a poor score in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.296295 percent of its residents. 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 less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
