Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. In computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving a resident more frequently.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this nursing home received a reasonably solid short-term care grade in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in that area. Short-term care scores are meaningful for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

As it turns out, this facility's inspection reports also were not the source of this facility's abysmal overall grade. It received a grade of C in this area. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we rated was long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.93252 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
