Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We were not able to award this facility any respectable grades. We wanted to point out that it received an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are considered to be most critical for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its abysmal score in this area, we were not stunned to discover this nursing home offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
This nursing home earned really poor inspection reports in recent years, causing us to give them an F for inspections. An F in this category is usually a signal that we found some major red flags on its government inspection reports. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was hit with a category J or K deficiency, which rank among the worst deficiencies. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. There are quite a few subcategories within this area. Most of the datapoints are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our fourth category, this nursing home didn't fare very well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 70.18633 percent of its residents, which is well below average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
