Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on deficiency's for this nursing home. 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Surprisingly, we awarded this nursing home a B- for our short-term care rating, which is not a bad grade. In our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to forge a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in that area. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 71.969696 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than what we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
