Nurse Quality

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we gave it a B+ in nursing. This score is much more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our nursing rating is primarily tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

In addition, we also would like to note that this nursing home was awarded favorable short-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our better grades in this area, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the nursing home's second strongest grade. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. We were not able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. When a facility has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we want to point out that this facility received large government fines recently totaling more than $100,000. This usually indicates that a poor performance spanned multiple years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor score in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated just 72.560974 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
