Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Surprisingly, we awarded this facility a grade of B- for its short-term care grade, which is not too bad of a score. In forming these short-term care grades, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third category we graded was long-term care, in which this facility received an F. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 93.37748 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a bit lower than we were hoping for but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we looked at was inspections. Unfortunately, this nursing home didn't receive favorable inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this category. When a place has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home had 2 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 threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
