Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although this facility's overall score was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care category. We gave it a C for that category, which is a decent score. Unfortunately, this was not enough to spare its overall profile. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Nurse Quality

Grade: C

This nursing home really excelled in the area of nursing, where it earned an C. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing ratings are largely based on the nursing home's level of 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. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility received a grade of just D in our inspection category. This is well below average grade. Inspection grades factor in many items found on the facility's inspection reports. If you see severe deficiencies on the reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to point out that this place received large government fines of more than $100,000. This generally signifies that a bad performance has been an issue for several years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home received an abysmal score here as well. We gave it an F in this category, which is definitely very concerning. For residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the data points we considered after nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 97.452225 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
