Nurse Quality

Grade: C

Although we graded this facility extremely poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a C in this area. The nursing category includes many datapoints, many of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is well below average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this statistic. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving residents more frequently.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being its second best grade. One of the more significant factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We would scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 12 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to point out that this nursing home received significant government fines in recent years of over $50,000. This often signifies that government inspectors grew tired after multiple years of bad health inspections.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Another issue is the F this nursing home was given in the area of short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we strive to forge a meaningful measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Given its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 3.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Switching gears to our last area, this facility really didn't fare well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that don't score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 88.25301 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
