Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing score assesses quite a few factors, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to find that this facility earned a somewhat respectable long-term care grade this year. We awarded it a grade of C in that area. Our long-term care scores are more critical for those needing more conventional services associated with activities of daily living. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 94.16667 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another issue was the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
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. For places with bad inspection grades, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
