Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform as badly in nursing. We gave it a grade of B- for that area. There are a host of subcategories included in this area. Most of the criteria reflect staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this facility earned a solid short-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in that area. In crafting our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to formulate a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. We would scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we need to point out that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This usually signifies that a poor track record spanned more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Moving on to our next category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category. This is the facility's weakest category grade. In a long-term care environment, the primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the data points we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
