Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we actually awarded it a fairly strong score in long-term care, where it earned a grade of B+. This is better than most facilities in this area. This helped an otherwise poor profile. Facilities that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.11308 percent of its residents, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's second most favorable area is short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. Short-term care ratings are critical for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. There are a variety of criteria included in this grade. Most of the datapoints reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was inspections. This facility did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we had to give it an F here. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had potential to create actual harm to patients. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently of more than $100,000. This usually indicates that a nursing home's bad performance has been an issue for several years.
