Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We didn't have any positive things to say about this nursing home's overall grade or its category grades. Its best category is nursing. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. Our nursing score includes quite a few datapoints, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is slightly below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This place earned just a D in the area of inspections. Sadly, this ended up being its second best score. Our inspection scores weigh many items found on the facility's recent inspection reports. If you see severe deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed 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 created a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we want to point out that this place received significant government fines totaling over $100,000. This often means that a poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Additionally, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of short-term care. In crafting these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Given its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this facility offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we analyzed was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a very poor score. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 62 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
