Long-term Care Quality
We could not find anything positive to say about this place. It received a D in long-term care. Tragically, this was its best grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 93.540054 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a bit less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
We wanted to point out that this nursing home earned an F for its inspection rating. An F in this category is especiallY troublesome because it usually points to major red flags on the nursing home's government inspection reports. When a facility has this bad of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This nursing home had 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently of over $50,000. This usually suggests that inspectors became frustrated after several years of bad health inspections.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. The nursing rating weighs several subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care, where this facility received an abysmal grade in this area as well. It received a lowly F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our short-term care scores are vital for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a grade in this range in this category, we were not shocked to find this place was well below average in several staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
