Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for our short-term care rating. With our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our nursing grade includes a number of datapoints. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this place received a lowly F for its inspection score. This is an important category. Grades in this range generally mean we found red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For facilities with bad inspection ratings, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with one deficiency by government inspectors. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in a category that suggests that it caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 8 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated is long-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in that category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.48872 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
