Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Our nursing score weighs several datapoints. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this facility a B- for its short-term care score, which really isn't a bad grade. Short-term care ratings are meaningful for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second worse category was long-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 99.168976 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident safety or health. 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.
