Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Even though this place's overall score was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform terribly in the area of short-term care. We gave it a B- for that category, which isn't bad. However, this was not enough to save its profile. Short-term care grades are generally employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care score, which is not a score to write home about. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 98.25784 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The last category we assessed was inspections. This facility did not receive positive government inspections in recent years. As a result, we had to give it an F in this category. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection rating. We recommend you pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
