Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable nursing rating of B-. The nursing rating is based on a variety of factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home provides only 0.5 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a somewhat alarming figure as it is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of turning residents at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best area turned out to be its short-term care grade, where it received a grade of B-. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 6.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest category is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B-. Long-term care scores are meaningful for individuals in need of personal care. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable datapoint. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. When a facility has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
