Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care grade this year. We gave it a B- in that area, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we found for this nursing home. Our short-term care scores are arguably more meaningful for those needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this facility earned a solid long-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a C in this category. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.46231 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we also want to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines in recent years totaling more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a nursing home's bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The final area we scored was nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. Our nursing rating consists of a handful of subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
