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. The nursing rating consists of a handful of factors, however, the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home also didn't perform terribly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a C for that area, which ended up being another one of its better scores. In determining our short-term care grades, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is frequently a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. Generally, you should be more cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The last category we rated is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a very poor score. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 70.588234 percent of its patients. This is quite a bit less than average. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
