Long-term Care Quality

Grade: C

Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our long-term care rating. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

Interestingly, this nursing home's awful overall score can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We awarded it a C for inspections. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Nurse Quality

Grade: D

This facility's next best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with nurse staffing levels. This place averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: D

The next area we scored was short-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in short-term care. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is more often than not a reliable measure of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Given its score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
