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. We weighed the licensure of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of hours the nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a solid score in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Short-term care ratings are important for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types 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 average facility. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

This facility's third most favorable category turned out to be long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In our long-term care grade, we assess the quantity of services offered by a nursing home, along with a series of qualitative datapoints. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to discover that this facility vaccinated 97.49104 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The last category we addressed is inspections. We gave this nursing home a C. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's government inspection reports. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
