Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Our inspection scores are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility received 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
This nursing home excelled in our nursing category, where it received an B-. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this statistic. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving patients more often.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't fare poorly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of B- in that category, which happens to be another one of its more favorable grades. In crafting these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 6 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this category. In a long-term care environment, 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 patients. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 95.757576 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
