Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid government inspections in recent years. We gave it a respectable grade of B+ in this category, which is much better than its overall score. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a B in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our better scores. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for patients in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. It does not look like this facility submitted data regarding its registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 90.37657 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
The final area we analyzed is nursing. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. In calculating our nursing ratings, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades.
