Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Even though this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform quite as poorly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which isn't bad. Unfortunately, this was not enough to salvage its otherwise poor profile. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an C. The nursing rating includes a number of subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score. This is not a very good score. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.6 percent of its residents returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. This happens to be the most heavily weighted category in our overall scoring system. With facilities that received this poor of an inspection score, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by inspectors had potential to create actual harm to residents. Finally, this facility also received 12 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
