Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category scores gave us much to write home about. Its best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. When computing our nursing grades, we weigh both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is slightly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Unfortunately, this nursing home earned an F for its inspection rating. This is a particularly important category. Grades in this range typically point to some red flags on the nursing home's government inspection reports. For places with poor inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility had a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had the potential to create actual harm to residents. Lastly, we also want to point out that this place received significant government fines recently of more than $50,000. This usually indicates that government inspectors became frustrated after multiple years of bad inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another unfortunate development was the F this facility received in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be more meaningful for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.8 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 64.12698 percent of its patients. This is several points below what we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
