Nurse Quality

Grade: C

While this facility's overall grade was terrible, it actually didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it a C for this area. The nursing grade is based on numerous datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This place earned a D in the area of inspections. Sadly, this ended up being its second best score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 35 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not an impressive grade. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its weak rating in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to the last area, this facility did not fare very well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 82.296646 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
