Nurse Quality

Grade: B-minus

While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. The nursing rating weighs several factors, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages 3.8 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also considered quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place was above average in several of the major metrics we assessed, with good scores for minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: B-minus

We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this nursing home received a reasonably solid long-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. Once we concluded our assessment of the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. The last statistic we assessed was its hospitalization rate. We found that this place had 7.79 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Although this figure is somewhat concerning, this statistic may be skewed for some facilities due to the preexisting medical conditions of patients.

Facility Inspections

Grade: C

This facility's awful overall grade probably can't be attributed to its government inspection reports. We awarded it a C for this category. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 9 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates this facility dodged the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Turning to our next category, this facility did not perform very well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 19 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
