Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. In determining our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

This facility ended up receiving a bottom of the barrel score in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this category. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 99.13793 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this facility really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection rating. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to point out that this facility received large government fines in recent years amounting to more than $100,000. This usually means that a nursing home's bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.
