Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to note its relatively favorable long-term care score this year. We gave it a respectable grade of B in this category, which was much better than its overall score. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.77477 percent of its patients, which is very impressive. Pneumonia can be a deadly ailment for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Lastly, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's third best category is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still fared relatively badly. Short-term care grades are critical for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score in this range in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was below average in many staffing figures we assess. It offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our final area of inspections, this facility received an F here. Since this data is collected by government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this category. When a facility has this bad of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This facility had 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines totaling over $100,000. This generally suggests that a poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.
