Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This place didn't perform quite as poorly in the area of long-term care. We gave it a B- for that area. Long-term care ratings are critical for residents requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 91.26214 percent of its patients, which is a bit less than we expected. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility excelled in our nursing category, where it received an C. Few facilities fared better in this category. Our nursing grade consists of quite a few datapoints, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Interestingly, this facility's awful overall grade can't really be attributed to its government inspections. We gave it a C for this category. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's weakest area was short-term care, which is the final category we scored. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
