Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. The nursing category includes quite a few datapoints, many of which are based on nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, our nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next best category is long-term care. However, with a D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 72.68519 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. One of the most critical factors in evaluating inspection reports is deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had a deficiency by government inspectors. We were relieved to find that it was not in a category that suggests that it caused a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home received an abysmal grade in this category also. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. In forming our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
