Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While we did not give this nursing home a favorable overall grade, we gave it a strong grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a B. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is based on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.

Long-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development is the F this nursing home received in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated just 57.40741 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
The last category we assessed is inspections. This nursing home did not receive favorable government inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we gave it an F here. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection grade, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility had 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines recently of over $100,000. This typically suggests that a nursing home's bad performance spanned several years.
