Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although this facility's overall grade was horrible, it didn't perform quite as poorly in the area of long-term care. In fact, we gave it a C for that area, which isn't bad. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to spare its otherwise weak profile. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 96.42857 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home excelled in our nursing category, where it earned an C. Few places fared better in this area. Our nursing rating includes quite a few factors, but the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this place's worst category grades was a lowly F for its inspection grade. Generally, this means we found some red flags on the nursing home's government inspections. When a nursing home 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 nursing home was assessed 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we also need to point out that this facility received significant government fines of over $100,000. This typically means that a poor performance spanned several years.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in this category. Our short-term care grades are critical for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we were not stunned to discover this place was below average in several staffing areas we looked at. It provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
