Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a poor overall score, we gave it a fairly respectable grade in nursing, where it received a grade of B-. This was better than its other category scores. Our nursing score is based on several components, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a solid score in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received slightly below average government inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this category. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was hit with 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This tells you that this facility dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's least impressive area was long-term care, which is the last area we scored. In this area, we gave this facility a D. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated only 82.64706 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
