Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our nursing rating is mostly tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This facility also didn't rate terribly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is another one of its better scores. In our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also stunned to find that this nursing home earned a decent long-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for patients in need of more conventional services related to personal care. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 92.64214 percent of its residents. This is a bit lower than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 1.51 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

In our last category of inspections, this facility received a terrible score. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
