Short-term Care Quality
Neither this place's overall score nor its category scores gave us anything positive to point out. Its best category was short-term care, but even there it received a lowly D. In determining these short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this nursing home. It performed better in this area, with 56.4 percent of its residents returning home.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. In computing our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This place averaged just 3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. In addition to its weak nursing hour totals, this facility received suboptimal scores in several of the quality-based metrics we considered in computing our nursing ratings. We found that a higher percentage of this facility's residents suffered falls leading to serious injury.

For facilities that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by CMS.

Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care, in which this facility was given a poor score in this area also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 32.56881 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at limiting hospitalizations. Although it had 2.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, its risk adjusted score wasn't bad since it had some more complex patients. This was its best score in this category
