Nurse Quality

Grade: C

While this nursing home's overall grade was rock bottom, it actually didn't perform as badly in nursing. In fact, we gave it a grade of C for that category. When computing a facility's nursing score, we assess the amount of time nurses are with patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This nursing home received really poor government inspection reports in recent years, causing us to give them an F in our inspection category. An F in this category is generally a signal that we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For places with bad inspection scores, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with a deficiency by government inspectors. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in one of the categories that suggest that it caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also need to point out that this nursing home received large government fines totaling more than $100,000. This usually indicates that a nursing home'spoor track record spanned more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In our next category, we gave this facility an F in the area of long-term care. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 94.014084 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this area as well. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely a major concern. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
