Nurse Quality

Grade: C

While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we gave it a C for our nursing rating. The nursing rating weighs many subcategories. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Interestingly, this nursing home's abysmal overall grade can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We awarded it a C for our inspections category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident health or safety. Finally, they also received 37 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is certainly not a great sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another concern was the F this nursing home received in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care grades are likely more critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.5 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is long-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 96.58793 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
