Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we gave it a grade of B+ for our inspections rating. This was the result of the nursing home receiving a quality government inspection report this year. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. This turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an D. The nursing grade assesses quite a few factors, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With a grade in this range in this category, we weren't stunned to discover this facility was below average in multiple staffing areas we focus on. It supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next area, this facility did not perform very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 95.51569 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
