Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in nursing. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This place averages 0 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of short-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility was awarded its third highest category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a decent grade. Long-term care grades are based in part on a facility's amount of nursing services. This includes a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility provided data regarding vaccinations. Lastly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our last area of inspections, this facility received an F here. For places with poor inspection scores, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
