Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care rating. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. That said, this was not enough to salvage its profile. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This facility also didn't perform poorly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a C for that area, which turned out to be another one of its better scores. Long-term care scores are based on the facility's amount of nursing care. This means a broad range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.260666 percent of its patients. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Looking to our final category of inspections, we gave this facility just a just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's government inspection reports. Since this information is compiled by government inspectors, we place a great deal of weight on it in our overall grades. Inspection grades weigh many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. When you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we need to point out that this nursing home received large government fines amounting to more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a facility's bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.
