Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. When determining a facility's nursing score, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in this area. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on the last category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. This happens to be our most heavily weighted category in our scoring system. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular facility was assessed 9 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 49 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
