Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was rock bottom, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it a B- for that area. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This nursing home ended up receiving a a very poor score in our long-term care area. It received an F in this area. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to a relatively low 86.19792 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue was the F this nursing home received in the area of short-term care. In determining our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is generally a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. With a grade this poor in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this nursing home was well below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. It offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspections in recent years. As a result, we gave it an F in this category. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We recommend you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had 9 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we want to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently of over $50,000. This generally means that government inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of failed government inspections.
