Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Interestingly, this facility's terrible overall score can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We gave it a grade of C for inspections. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. There are many datapoints included in this category. Many of these datapoints reflect nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we graded is long-term care, in which this nursing home received an abysmal grade in this area as well. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated 89.48498 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than the national average. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
