Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall score, we gave it a B- for our nursing category. When calculating a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of B- for its short-term care rating, which isn't too bad of a score. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is frequently a meaningful measure of a facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to note that this facility received an F for its inspection score. An F in this category is particularly troublesome because it generally points to red flags on the facility's inspection reports. For nursing homes with poor inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular nursing home had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a very poor score. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 86.93467 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly below what we expected. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
