Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Even though this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in nursing. We gave it a grade of A- for that category. There are several subcategories included in this category. Many of these criteria reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 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 nursing home 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 many times be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home's next most favorable area is short-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. In the category of short-term care, we try to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not an impressive grade. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility provided the vaccine to just 76.42857 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Turning the last category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection scores are based on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. We gave this nursing home a D in this category, which is not a very good grade. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. You should be most cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we would like to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines exceeding $50,000. This usually signifies that government inspectors became fed up after several years of bad inspections.
