Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. We awarded it a B- for this area. There are quite a few criteria included in this grade. Many of these subcategories are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Lastly, our nursing ratings also consider quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also stunned to learn that this facility received a decent short-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a C in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed significant government fines in recent years totaling more than $100,000. This generally means that a facility's bad track record spanned several years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed was long-term care. It received an F in this area, which is a poor grade. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 96.732025 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
