Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable nursing grade of B-. In computing our nursing scores, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility received its second highest category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Our short-term care grades are arguably most meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we graded is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a decent grade of B-. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
This nursing home did not receive a favorable inspection grade. We gave it a score of just D in this category. Inspection scores relate to a facility's inspection reports. We weight poor inspection grades heavily in our assessment. Since government inspection reports are compiled by independent inspectors, we consider this information to be very reliable. Our inspection ratings weigh many items on the facility's recent inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular facility was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by CMS had potential to pose actual harm to residents. We are also concerned by the fact that this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
