Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we gave this nursing home a weak overall score, we gave it a B in nursing. In determining a facility's nursing score, we look at the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of short-term care, this nursing home received just a D in this area. As it turns out, this proved to be one of its better grades. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We wanted to point out this facility's inspection score where it received an F. This typically means we found some red flags on its inspections. For facilities with poor inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received significant government fines in recent years of over $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's bad performance spanned multiple years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we analyzed was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated only 85.38011 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
