Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although this nursing home's overall score was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform as badly in nursing. We gave it a grade of B- for that category. The nursing grade includes many factors, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this nursing home's second most respectable score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still fared somewhat poorly. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a grade in this range for this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in multiple staffing figures we looked at. The facility offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that area. For residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our final category of inspections, this nursing home received a horrible grade. We weight this grade more heavily than other categories. For facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 48 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
