Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B- for our nursing category. When calculating our nursing grades, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we awarded this facility a B- for its short-term care grade, which is not too bad of a score. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.1 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 95.16129 percent of its patients, which is a very solid statistic. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Turning the last category of inspections, this facility fared very poorly. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. This is the most heavily weighted category in our scoring system. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection rating, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
