Nurse Quality

Grade: C

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. Our nursing grade consists of many subcategories, many of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is a very low figure. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality

Grade: D

As it turns out, this facility only earned a D for its long-term care grade, which ended up being one of its higher category grades. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After considering the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality

Grade: F

Our third category we graded is short-term care, in which this nursing home received an F. Our short-term care grades are probably most meaningful for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms 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. The final item we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.

Facility Inspections

Grade: F

The final category we assessed was inspections. This nursing home did not receive positive inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we had to give it an F here. We would advise paying close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility had 10 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 42 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
