Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we graded this nursing home very poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B- in that category. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this facility a grade of C for its long-term care score, which is not too bad of a score. In computing our long-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's personal care services. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 67.76859 percent of its patients, which is not a very encouraging sign. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't fare poorly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a grade of C for that area, which wound up being another one of its better grades. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility did not receive a favorable inspection grade. We gave it a score of just D in this category. Inspection scores relate to a facility's inspections. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. It does not look like we have deficiency data for this nursing home. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
