Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. There are a number of subcategories included in this area. Most of these criteria reflect nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care rating turns out to be one of its respectable scores. The facility was awarded a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are arguably most critical for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed is long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. Long-term care grades are typically used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a rehabilitation facility. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 69.408745 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In our final category of inspections, this facility received an abysmal grade. With nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident health or safety. 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.
