Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we actually awarded it a somewhat respectable score in the category of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. Inspection ratings weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Another area of concern is that 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 graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. There are a host of criteria within this category. Most of the factors relate to the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care provided.

This facility's next best area was its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In crafting these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 40.74074 percent of its residents. This is many points lower than average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
