Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-plus

Although we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B+ for long-term care. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Without this grade, its profile would have been in serious trouble. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care tend to provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.919785 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: C

We also gave this facility a decent score in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing grades are tied to quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided just 0.4 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-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

Turning our final category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. For places with poor inspection scores, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this nursing home has been assessed large government fines recently.
