Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care rating this year. We gave it a B- in that area. In forming our short-term care grades, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. There are a variety of criteria included in this category. Most of these criteria reflect staffing levels. This facility provided just 0.6 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care score, which isn't too bad of a score. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for those needing more conventional services associated with personal care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility administered the vaccine to just 57.333336 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our last category of inspections, this nursing home received a horrible grade. We weight this grade more heavily than our other categories. With places that received this poor of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
