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. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing grades are largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next best category is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat poorly. Our short-term care scores are crucial for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its abysmal rating in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a poor grade here as well. It received an F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After considering the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated only 60 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
