Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we gave this facility an abysmal overall score, we gave it a B- for our nursing category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't rate too badly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of C in that category, which happens to be among its better scores. Our long-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most meaningful for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its weak score in this area, we weren't shocked to discover this facility provides substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The last category we assessed was inspections. This facility didn't receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. Consequently, we had to give it an F in this category. When a facility has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 8 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
