Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This score is much better than the facility's overall score. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest area turned out to be long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a D for its short-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. Our short-term care grades are crucial for individuals looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
The next area we analyzed was nursing, which turned out to be a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this facility a D for our nursing category. We assessed the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses worked with patients, in calculating our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
