Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall rating, we awarded it a fairly respectable score in the area of inspections, where we gave it a B-. This was certainly better than its other categories. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
We also ended up giving this facility a fairly respectable grade in the area of nursing, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared well in this metric.

The next category we looked at is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a solid grade of B-. In our long-term care assessment, we focus on the quantity of care provided by a nursing home, as well as a handful of quality measures. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable statistic. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded is short-term care, turned out to be this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. In computing these short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. With its score in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The last item we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
