Short-term Care Quality

Grade: A-minus

Although we weren't complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it earned an A- in the category of short-term care. If it wasn't for this category, this facility's profile would have been even worse. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most critical for patients requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear that this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 7.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home an C. When determining our nursing grades, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving a bottom of the barrel score in our long-term care category. It was given a lowly F in this area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed is inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F here. When a facility has this bad of an inspection score, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular nursing home had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 15 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
