Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

While we gave this place an abysmal overall grade, we gave it a C for our long-term care rating. With our long-term care grade, we weigh the amount of services offered by a nursing home, as well as a series of quality metrics. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 93.592674 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing grades are largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a low total compared to most facilities. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this statistic. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning patients at least once a day.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to point out this nursing home's inspection score where it received an F. With places that received this poor of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was assessed several category G through L deficiencies, which are among the more severe categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had potential to create actual harm to patients. Finally, this facility also received 7 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last area we assessed was short-term care, where this nursing home received an abysmal score in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. Our short-term care scores are likely more important for those needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score in this range for this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in two of the key staffing metrics we focus on. The facility supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
