Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we did give it a strong grade in nursing, where it received a B. This is better than most facilities in this area. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. With our long-term care grade, we look at the quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as well as a handful of quality statistics. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 73.74518 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we assessed was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are important for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
In the final category of inspections, this ended up being this nursing home's weakest link. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent government inspections. We gave this facility a D in this category, which is a very weak grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 4 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
