Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. The nursing grade is based on a handful of components, however, the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this facility a B- for its long-term care score, which really isn't too bad of a score. Our long-term care grade assesses a facility's assistance with daily living instead of the skilled nursing and medical services that are critical to a skilled nursing facility. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 90.81632 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most critical for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its weak score in this category, we were not surprised to learn this nursing home provides substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
Turning the last category of inspections, this facility really did not fare well. It received an F in our inspection category. This is the most heavily weighted category in our overall scoring system. For nursing homes with bad inspection ratings, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to patient 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.
