Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. In calculating these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 7 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Sadly, this facility received an F for its long-term care grade. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 94.50172 percent of its patients, which is an above average total. To our surprise, this facility also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The next category we assessed is nursing. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is an abysmal score. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
