Registered Staff Hours
Unfortunately, we didn't have any good things to say about this facility's overall grade or its category grades. Its best area was the category of inspections. However, with just a D in this category, it still performed badly. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed large government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This often indicates that a bad performance has been an issue for multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
We also would like to note that this nursing home was given an F for its long-term care score. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving a a very poor grade in our short-term care category. It was given an F in this area. Our short-term care ratings are presumably most important for folks in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
The next category we assessed was nursing. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor score. Our nursing category assesses a handful of components, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
