Short-term Care Quality

Grade: B

While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of B for our short-term care score. This is more impressive than the facility's overall score. In fact, without this category, its profile would have been even worse. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is frequently a solid measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it does not look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our score in this category. This place provides only 0 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

We also wanted to point out this place's inspection rating where it received an F. With facilities that received this poor of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by the government inspectors had the potential to create actual harm to residents. Lastly, we also need to point out that this facility received significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This generally signifies that a facility's poor track record spanned several years.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Moving on to our next category, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 87.93103 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
