Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a poor overall score, we also awarded this facility terrible scores in each of the categories. In fact, it only received just a D for its inspections rating, which is its best area. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had 6 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a risk to patient safety or health. 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
Unfortunately, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which was actually one of its better category scores. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 96.54378 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next highest score is short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. In determining these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
The last category we analyzed is nursing. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a poor score. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
