Nurse Quality

Grade: A-minus

Even though we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to emphasize its high marks in nursing. We gave them an A- in this category. The nursing score includes quite a few components, however, the most important one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also awarded this nursing home a respectable score in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which is not a very good score. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 95.566505 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this nursing home received an F in this area. Since this data is compiled by government inspectors, we heavily weight poor results in this area. For facilities with poor inspection scores, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This often signifies that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
