Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we did not have many positive things to say about this nursing home's overall score, it did receive a slightly better long-term care score of B-. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 96.17225 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also want to point out that this facility received a decent grade in our nursing category. We awarded it a grade of B- in the area. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

The third category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the number 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 actually below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In the last category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. This is our most heavily weighted category in our overall grading system. With places that received this bad of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility had 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed large government fines in recent years amounting to over $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's poor track record has been an issue for more than one year.
