Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's best category score came in the area of nursing. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our nursing score consists of a handful of components, however, the paramount consideration is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next best area is its long-term care score, where it received a B-. In calculating these long-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's personal care services. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.34551 percent of its patients. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next most favorable area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this category. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this category. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more critical for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Looking to our last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's government inspections. Since this data is compiled by government inspectors, we place significant weight on it in our overall grades. Our inspection scores weigh many items on the facility's inspection reports. If you see severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. Tragically, this place was assessed a category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates widespread threats to resident health or safety. This type of deficiency is very damaging to a nursing home's inspection rating. Finally, we need to point out that this facility was assessed significant government fines in recent years amounting to over $100,000. This typically signifies that a facility's poor track record spanned multiple years.
