Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B- for our short-term care rating. Our short-term care grades are critical for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. In computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

We wanted to draw your attention to this place's inspection grade where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on its government inspections. For places that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is long-term care. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 85.2349 percent of its patients. This is multiple points below the national average. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
