Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively favorable long-term care rating this year. We gave it a B in this area. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

We gave this facility a C for our inspections category. Our inspection scores are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home was hit with 10 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories J through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to place resident health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final area we assessed was short-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a D for our short-term care category. Short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
