Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for our long-term care rating. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 85.85608 percent of its patients. This is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a decent figure. While its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't rate poorly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of C for that area, which ended up being among its more respectable grades. Our short-term care scores are vital for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. The nursing grade analyzes several components, but the main one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning the last category of inspections, this nursing home really did not fare well. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. When a facility has this bad of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we need to point out that this nursing home received large government fines of more than $50,000. This often suggests that inspectors grew tired after multiple years of failed inspections.
