Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had too many deficiencies. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's second best score is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat poorly. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 93.52941 percent of its residents, which is a few points below what we expected. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second lowest score was short-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a score in this range in this area, we were not surprised to find this nursing home was below average in multiple staffing metrics we looked at. The nursing home provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
Turning to the final category, this facility didn't fare very well in this area either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. The nursing grade is based on a handful of data points, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
