Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we graded this facility very poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. The nursing rating weighs several datapoints, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this facility received a solid long-term care rating in our assessment. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 34.715027 percent of its patients for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This nursing home really didn't perform horribly in inspections. We gave them a C for that category. The last category we looked at actually turned out to be the source of this facility's abysmal overall score. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This tells you it dodged 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: F

The final area we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is often a useful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
