Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. The nursing grade features numerous datapoints. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also surprised to find that this nursing home earned a decent short-term care grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our short-term care scores are probably most meaningful for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Interestingly, this facility's horrible overall score can't really be attributed to its inspections. We awarded it a grade of C for our inspections rating. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This facility had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that it avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade in this category also. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 78.26087 percent of its patients. This is several points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
