Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care grade this year. We gave it a B- in that category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is considered to be a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This facility excelled in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of C. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our nursing score is primarily based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. 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. Finally, while this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

This facility received really weak inspection reports in recent years, causing them to receive an F for inspections. An F in this area is typically a sign that we found some red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. When a place has this poor of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This usually indicates that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The next category we rated was long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a rock bottom score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 83.20611 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
