Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing grade is mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. For facilities that received this poor of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we analyzed is long-term care. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor score. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 97.214485 percent of its residents, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
