Registered Staff Hours
Even though we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we actually gave it a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a B-. This was better than its other category scores. The nursing score includes a handful of datapoints, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care grade turns out to be one of its best scores. The nursing home was awarded a B- in this area. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is more often than not a meaningful measure of the facility's rehabilitation. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients.

This nursing home vaccinated 97.487434 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Looking to our last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home just a just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection rating is based on the nursing home's government inspections. Since this data is compiled by government inspectors, we place a great deal of weight on it in our overall grades. One of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. It does not look like we have information on deficiency's for this nursing home. 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.
