Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we graded this nursing home extremely poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B- in that area. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This facility averages just 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next highest category is short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. Short-term care grades are critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 1.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We awarded this facility just a D for our long-term care score. This is not an impressive grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 91.47287 percent of its residents, which is a bit below what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is inspections. This facility did not receive positive inspections in recent years. As a result, we gave it an F here. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
