Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area is its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 94.27481 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. In calculating a nursing home's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses are caring for residents as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this facility didn't fare well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
