Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we gave this nursing home a poor overall score, we actually gave it a fairly respectable grade in nursing, where it received a B-. This was better than its other category scores. When computing our nursing scores, we weigh both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled 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 good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area was long-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. In determining our long-term care grades, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living received by the nursing home's patients. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 99.85251 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home received mediocre government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a C in this area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite insignificant. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed is short-term care. It received an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Short-term care scores are crucial for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we weren't stunned to find this facility was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we focus on. It supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.3 percent of its residents returning home.
