Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility some really poor grades. Among them were its F for its long-term care grade. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 98.283264 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Included in this facility's litany of low-end grades was its F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for folks requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. The final item we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Among this place's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection score. Typically, this indicates we found red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. When a place has this poor of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. Tragically, this place had one category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates widespread threats to patient safety or health. This type of deficiency is toxic to a facility's inspection rating. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This often signifies that a poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

The last area we scored was nursing. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. The nursing score analyzes a handful of subcategories, most of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
