Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we did give it a very strong grade in nursing, where it received a grade of B. This is better than most facilities in this category. We assessed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this nursing home a solid score in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of care. This means a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 95.60439 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. In calculating our short-term care scores, we analyze a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is considered to be a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For facilities that received this poor of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies by CMS. 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 resident health or safety. Finally, we also would like to point out that this place received large government fines totaling more than $100,000. This often suggests that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.
