Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we gave this nursing home an D. Nursing ratings are mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 92.617455 percent of its residents, which is a few points lower than we anticipated. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, in which this facility was given an abysmal score here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
