Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned an impressive short-term care score this year. We awarded it a B in this category. In calculating our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is typically a reliable assessment of a facility's rehabilitation. It does not look like this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it received an C. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing score is largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 114 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home did not fare very well in this area either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. Facilities that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 79.53795 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
