Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we did not rate this nursing home well overall, we want to point out its much more favorable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B in this category, which was much better than its overall score. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We view these statistics as reliable measures of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

This nursing home's next best category was its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. It was respectable in this area with 45.4 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in that category. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 63.31361 percent of its residents for pneumonia. We were also disappointed with the nursing home's hospitalization rate. We found that this nursing home had 3.16 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is nearly twice the national average.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Moving on our last area of inspections, this facility received an F here. Since this information is collected by government inspectors, we heavily weight poor results in this area. When a facility has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was hit with multiple deficiencies in categories G through L, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had the potential to pose actual harm to residents. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This generally suggests that a poor performance has been an issue for several years.
