Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Even though we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that area. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this nursing home's bottom of the barrel overall grade. It received a C in this category. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home had 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This means it avoided the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Nursing scores are primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. With a meager 3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. To pair with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per patient, this facility also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in this area. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
