Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating is mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores.

Long-term Care Quality
Our third category we assessed is long-term care, in which this facility was given an F. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 77.40964 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a grade this poor in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this facility was below average in multiple staffing areas we assess. The nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that 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.
