Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many positive things to say about this place's overall grade, it earned a somewhat respectable inspection report this year. It received a decent score in that category with a B-. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Short-term care grades are often used to score a facility's performance with rehabilitation To have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care, which was this nursing home's worst area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. If you are looking for anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care grades. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid total. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
