Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received rock bottom ratings in our assessment. Perhaps most alarmingly, it received an F for its inspection grade. Typically, this means we found some red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. For places that received this poor of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by the government inspectors had potential to pose actual harm to residents. Another area of concern is that CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an F. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This facility provided only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed is short-term care, where this facility was given an F. Short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score in this range in this category, we were not surprised to learn this facility was well below average in many staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is long-term care. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is a rock bottom score. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated only 59.148937 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
