Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

On top of receiving a poor overall score, we also gave this place weak scores in our categories. In fact, it received just a D for its short-term care grade, which was its best grade. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

Sadly, this facility's second best category was inspections, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This typically signifies that a nursing home'spoor track record spanned several years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This place offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The final category we analyzed is long-term care, is this nursing home's worst area. We gave this facility a grade of D in that area. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 76.892426 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
