Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this nursing home an C. When computing our nursing scores, we look at both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's third best score is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, this nursing home didn't perform very well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. Short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage 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 4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
