Nurse Quality


Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. The nursing score is based on a handful of datapoints, but the primary consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. According to CMS records, this facility averaged 4.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Keep in mind that when we calculate our nursing ratings, we add more weight to hours performed by nurses with a higher level of skill. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as minimizing major falls. This place performed admirably in this subcategory. Avoiding serious falls is generally a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home offers enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality


We were also stunned to find that this facility earned a solid short-term care score in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in that category. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. One reason for this facility's strong score in this category is that it provides more care with registered nurses to its residents than the average nursing home. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure is below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality


Remarkably, we awarded this facility a grade of C for its long-term care score, which really isn't a bad grade. In calculating our long-term care grades, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living received by the facility's residents. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We weren't able to locate this place's vaccination data. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections


The last category we looked at was inspections. This facility didn't receive favorable government inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F. For nursing homes with bad inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
