Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Even though we gave this facility a very poor overall grade, we gave it a B for our nursing rating. The nursing rating consists of several factors, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Surprisingly, we awarded this nursing home a C for its long-term care grade, which isn't too bad of a score. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the amount of care offered by a nursing home, as opposed to more sophisticated services. One of the criteria we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 97.92453 percent of its patients. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care score, which is well below average in this category. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Based on its weak score in this category, we were not shocked to find that this facility offers far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this nursing home really did not fare well. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. This is our most heavily weighted category in our scoring system. When a place has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to point out that this place received large government fines recently of over $100,000. This often means that a bad track record spanned multiple years.
