Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Even though we gave this nursing home a terrible overall score, we gave it a grade of C for short-term care. Short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last measure we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Facility Inspections

Grade: D

This facility earned a D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this was its second best grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

Nurse Quality

Grade: F

Among this nursing home's several poor grades was its F in the area of nursing care. The nursing rating is based on a variety of subcategories. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: F

The final category we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a very poor grade in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Facilities that do not score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated just 75.167786 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
