Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we awarded it a fairly strong score in long-term care, where it received a B+. This is better than many facilities in this category. This propped up an otherwise poor profile. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 93.233086 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an C. There are a host of datapoints within this grade. Many of these criteria are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second least favorable score is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that category. This is a well below average score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
In the final category of inspections, this facility fared very poorly. It received an F in our inspection rating. This is the most heavily weighted category in our scoring system. For places with poor inspection grades, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which are among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by CMS had the potential to cause actual harm to residents. Lastly, this nursing home has received large government fines in the past few years.
