Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall score was terrible, it actually didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. We awarded it a grade of B- for this category. There are many criteria within this area. Most of these datapoints relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also surprised to learn that this nursing home received a somewhat respectable short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. In our short-term care category, we try to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. Inspection scores account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. Generally, you should be more cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This particular facility was hit with a category J through K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that the government inspectors found a deficiency which places resident health or safety in imminent danger. 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

Switching gears to our final area, this nursing home really didn't perform very well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 75.789474 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
