Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for our nursing rating. When calculating our nursing grades, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the country in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of moving patients more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't rate poorly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of C for that category, which wound up being among its higher grades. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We gave it a grade of just D for our inspections rating. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility had 5 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 threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we would like to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This usually suggests that a facility's poor track record has been an issue for multiple years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored was long-term care, where this facility received an abysmal score in this category as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the vaccine to only 64.44805 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
