Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are mostly associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for its short-term care rating, which is not a bad grade. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final datapoint we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Unfortunately, this facility didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. We gave it a grade of just D for our inspections rating. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. 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 graded was long-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 96.1326 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
