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-. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest score was long-term care, but even there it earned a grade of just D in that area. This ended up being a well below average grade. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.41071 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a bit lower than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is not a score to write home about. Short-term care ratings are critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types 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 last datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
The next category we rated is nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a poor grade. The nursing grade is based on a handful of subcategories, however, the main consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
