Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

Even though this nursing home's overall score was terrible, it actually didn't perform as badly in nursing. In fact, we awarded it a B- for this category. Our nursing score consists of many subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below average. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Incredibly, we gave this facility a B- for its short-term care rating, which isn't too bad of a score. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this facility received just a D in that category. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 98.54651 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For facilities with bad inspection scores, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility is classified as a special focus facility by CMS. This generally means the facility exhibited substandard patient care over the course of multiple government inspections. We would strongly advise you to avoid any facility with this classification.
