Nurse Quality

Grade: C

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 C 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: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in this category. As it turns out, this ended up being one of its best areas. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 91.08635 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grade where it received a lowly F. This usually means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. For nursing homes with bad inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with 9 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, we also need to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines recently in excess of $50,000. This usually suggests that inspectors grew tired after multiple years of bad government inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our next area, this facility really did not fare very well in this area either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. In computing these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
