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 grade is largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Surprisingly, we awarded this nursing home a B- for our short-term care rating, which really isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most critical for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We gave it a grade of just D for our inspections rating. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility was hit with one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. We are also concerned by the fact that 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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our next category, this nursing home didn't fare well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 71.31783 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
