Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we weren't high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B- for short-term care. This score is more respectable than the place's overall score. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were surprised to find 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. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. There are a host of subcategories included in this area. Many of these subcategories reflect levels of nurse staffing. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a system of moving a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

This facility's second worse category is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to just 89.589905 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we looked at is inspections. This nursing home didn't receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. Consequently, we had to give it an F. For places that received this poor of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility had 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we want to point out that this nursing home received significant government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This usually signifies that a nursing home's bad track record spanned several years.
