Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. Our nursing grade is based on numerous factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this nursing home's bottom of the barrel overall grade. In fact, it earned a grade of C in this category. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place had 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that this facility avoided the more serious categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this nursing home earned a somewhat respectable short-term care score this year. We awarded it a C in this area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we rated is long-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this category also. It received a lowly F in this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Long-term care ratings in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 91.57895 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we expected but still a decent figure. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
