Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for short-term care. Short-term care grades are vital for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Interestingly, this facility's awful overall score can't really be attributed to its inspection reports. We awarded it a C for our inspections rating. Inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in category J, K or L. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in immediate harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing grade assesses the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Finally, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Facilities that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 91.36213 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
