Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we graded this nursing home very poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B- in that area. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next highest category was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat poorly. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 82.71276 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than what we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years of over $100,000. This generally indicates that a facility's poor performance spanned several years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home really did not fare well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This score is frequently a reliable assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.
