Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Even though we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall grade, we gave it a grade of C for our nursing category. Our nursing rating includes many subcategories, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a D for its long-term care rating, which turns out to be one of its more favorable category scores. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. Inspection grades weigh many items found on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. If you find too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 28 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we graded was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a very poor score. In computing our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is frequently a reliable measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. With a score of this caliber in this category, we weren't surprised to find this facility was well below average in the two key staffing areas we assess. The facility offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
