Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a somewhat respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B- in that area. Our nursing score assesses the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care score and that actually ended up being its next most respectable category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.45355 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second least favorable category was short-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that area. This is a well below average grade. In forming these short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 2.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
Moving on our final category of inspections, this facility received an abysmal grade. We weight this grade more heavily than other categories. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 10 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
