Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this nursing home a poor overall score, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is the result of the nursing home receiving a decent government inspection report this year. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many severe deficiencies flagged. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for its short-term care score, which really isn't too bad of a score. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

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. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to patients as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we looked at is long-term care. It received an F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 64.40678 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
