Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform quite as poorly in long-term care. We awarded it a C for that category, which isn't bad. This was not enough to spare its otherwise poor profile. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 97.916664 percent of its residents, which is a very solid total. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing government inspections in recent years. We gave it a D for our inspections rating and that actually proved to be its second highest grade. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had 7 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 17 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. The nursing rating considers a variety of factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored is short-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 2.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
