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.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a C for our short-term care grade, which really isn't a bad grade. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we assessed in this category is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't perform too badly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a C in that category, which happens to be another one of its more favorable scores. Long-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of nursing care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Looking to our final category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a grade of just just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection grade is based on the nursing home's inspections. Since this data is compiled by government inspectors, we place more weight on it in our overall grades. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. Generally, you should be more cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This particular facility had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 44 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
