Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 10 deficiencies on its inspection report. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing score is largely based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next best score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still fared somewhat badly. With our short-term care category, we attempt to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinates 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
