Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B- for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that were able to return home from this facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. We gave it a C for that category. Other categories turned out to be the source of its abysmal overall score. Our inspection grades are based on many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that it dodged the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't perform terribly in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is another one its better scores. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at was long-term care. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 91.2 percent of its residents, which is a bit less than we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
