Registered Staff Hours
We just could not find anything favorable to say about this nursing home. It received a grade of just D in the category of inspections. Unfortunately, this turned out to be its best score. One of the more critical factors in assessing inspection reports is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received large government fines of over $50,000. This generally indicates that government inspectors grew tired after multiple years of failed government inspections.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an D. Our nursing rating considers a variety of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grades are likely most critical for those requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score in this range in this area, we were not surprised to find that this place was well below average in two of the key staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our next category, this facility really didn't fare very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. For residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.54386 percent of its patients, which is higher than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
