Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was given just a D in that category. As it turns out, this wound up being one of its best areas. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 97.31707 percent of its patients, which is an above average statistic. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. With its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The final item we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
