Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second best category ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a C. Short-term care ratings are vital for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. We weighed the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in computing our score in this area. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in this area. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 77.04281 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
