Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B- in that category. The nursing rating is based on a handful of datapoints, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a patient more often.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a B- for our short-term care grade, which isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 3.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to note that this facility received an F for its inspection grade. An F in this area is particularly troublesome because it usually points to red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We would scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by inspectors had the potential to create actual harm to residents. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this category. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to only 82.48588 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
