Nurse Quality


While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. Based on the CMS data, this nursing home offers 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these to be indicators of quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality


Incredibly, we gave this facility a grade of C for its short-term care score, which isn't a bad grade. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. It provided 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. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality


As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its long-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. Nursing homes that don't score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We weren't able to track down information on vaccination rates. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Facility Inspections


The final category we looked at was inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable inspections in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F in this category. For places with bad inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home had a deficiency by CMS. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in one of the categories that suggest that it caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 38 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
