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.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's next highest category is long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 91.47287 percent of its patients, which is slightly less than we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this nursing home's third highest score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively poorly. Short-term care grades are generally employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services To provide highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Considering its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 1.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we assessed is inspections. This facility didn't receive favorable government inspections in recent years. Consequently, we had to give it an F in this category. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
