Registered Staff Hours
Even though we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B- for our nursing rating. The nursing score is based on a handful of factors, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't fare too badly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which happens to be another one of its more favorable scores. Our short-term care ratings are meaningful for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only received a D for its long-term care score, which is not a very good score. When nursing homes receive this type of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated a relatively low 90.85366 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
This nursing home did not receive a favorable inspection score. We gave it a grade of just just D in this category. Inspection grades relate to a facility's government inspections. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
