Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this nursing home very poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. According to its staffing data, this facility provided an average of 4.1 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which was above the national average. Lastly, we also looked at a few nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this metric. This is usually a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of turning residents at least once a day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home also didn't rate poorly in the category of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which happens to be among its more respectable scores. Our long-term care ratings are crucial for individuals seeking personal care. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. The last datapoint we assessed is its hospitalization rate. While it had 3.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was not too far off the national average.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This nursing home's second least favorable category was short-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a well below average score. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This area is more often than not a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse hours provided to its patients. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 38.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. This statistic was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.

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 nursing homes with poor inspection ratings, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed 14 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
