Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom scores in our assessment. Perhaps most alarmingly, it received an F for its short-term care grade. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its poor rating in this category, we were not shocked to find this facility provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. When a facility has this poor of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home had 8 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk 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.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 53.097347 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
The final area we rated was nursing. We gave it a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. Nursing grades are tied to quality and quantity of nursing care. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
