Long-term Care Quality
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a more respectable long-term care score this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 89.42116 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. One of the more significant factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home had 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility also received 14 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home was given a poor grade of F in that category. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its weak score in this area, we were not stunned to find that this place offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
