Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall score wasn't a highlight, it actually received a decent grade in nursing. We awarded it a B- for that category. The nursing category is based on many factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is more often than not a useful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

This nursing home earned slightly below average government inspections in recent years. We gave them a grade of C in this area. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next category, we gave this nursing home a D for the area of long-term care. This is the nursing home's least impressive category score. Facilities that do not score well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to only 73.33333 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
