Nurse Quality

Grade: B

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for our nursing rating. There are quite a few factors within this category. Most of these subcategories reflect nurse staffing. This facility provided 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at certain nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. These include minimizing residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We look at these statistics as reliable indicators of the caliber of nursing care provided, since better care tends to reduce these problems.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We were also stunned to find that this nursing home earned a decent short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in this area. With our short-term care score, we seek to create a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 38.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 75.58771 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points less than what we expected. To our surprise, this nursing home was not as bad as we expected at keeping its residents out of the hospital. While it had 1.73 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted statistic was not bad since it had some more complex patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. When a place has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home had one category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst categories of deficiencies. Lastly, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's poor track record spanned several years.
