Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's scores are horrible across the board. In particular, we wanted to point out its inspection grade where it received an F. This isn't a good sign for its government inspection reports. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed 9 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, 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.
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade is largely associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This number is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated just 42.31738 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was short-term care. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in this category. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score this poor for this area, we were not stunned to find this facility was below average in two of the key staffing metrics we focus on. The facility supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
