Nurse Quality

Grade: B

While we were down on this facility overall, we gave it a grade of B for our nursing rating. There are a number of datapoints included in this area. Many of the criteria relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility's next highest area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it received a B-. Our short-term care ratings are vital for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home had 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed significant government fines of more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a nursing home's poor performance spanned more than one year.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we looked at was long-term care, which was this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
