Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. There are a host of datapoints included in this category. Many of the subcategories are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The next most favorable category we gave this facility in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third best category was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. Our long-term care scores are more meaningful for people in need of more traditional services associated with personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning the last category of inspections, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. Inspection grades are based on a facility's recent inspection reports. We gave this facility just a D in this category, which is not a very good grade. One of the more important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to resident health or safety. 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.
