Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an B-. We analyzed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our grade in this category. This place provided just 0 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a low total compared with most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this place's worst category grades was a lowly F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this indicates we found some red flags on the nursing home's government inspection reports. With places that received this bad of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 19 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was long-term care. It received an F for this area, which is an abysmal score. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 85.6383 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
