Registered Staff Hours
While we were down on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B for our nursing rating. This grade is much more impressive than the facility's overall score. Nursing scores are mostly associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this place excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place New York in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of turning patients even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care score appears to be one of its higher grades. The nursing home was awarded a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse category was long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that area. This is a well below average score. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated only 32.727276 percent of its residents, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
This nursing home did not receive a favorable inspection rating. We gave it a grade of just just D in this category. Inspection ratings relate to a facility's government inspection reports. We weight poor inspection scores heavily in our assessment. Since the inspections are compiled by independent government inspectors, we consider this data to be very reliable. One of the more important factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed one deficiency by government inspectors. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in a category that suggests that it posed a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 9 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
