Registered Staff Hours
Neither this facility's overall grade nor its category scores gave us anything to write home about. This place's best category is nursing, but even there it received just a D. The nursing score considers many factors. The most heavily weighted one is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This place provided 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had potential to create actual harm to residents. We are also concerned by the fact that 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.

Long-term Care Quality
Another issue is the F this nursing home was given in the area of long-term care. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 95.249405 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this category. In determining these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
