Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. There are several criteria within this area. Most of these subcategories reflect levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also surprised to discover that this facility received a reasonably solid short-term care rating this year. We gave it a B- in this category. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it 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 item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this facility earned a somewhat respectable long-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in that category. With our long-term care category, we analyze the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as well as a few qualitative datapoints. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.67427 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For nursing homes with poor inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. 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.
