Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, we didn't have many favorable things to say about this nursing home's overall score or its category grades. Its best category was nursing. Nevertheless, with just a D in this area, it still performed poorly. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are seeing patients and the level of skill of the nurses. 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-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility's next best category was the area of inspections. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed poorly. Our inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. You should be more cautious when considering a facility that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with a deficiency by government inspectors. We were relieved to find that it was not in a category that suggests that it created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we need to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines recently of over $50,000. This often suggests that CMS inspectors grew tired after multiple years of failed inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grades are presumably more meaningful for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its score in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final area we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 92.11956 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a decent percentage. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
