Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. In determining our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing score is largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's next best category was long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively poorly. For patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our last area of inspections, this facility received an F here. For places with bad inspection scores, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to residents. Finally, we also want to point out that this place received significant government fines totaling over $100,000. This typically signifies that a nursing home's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.
