Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an B-. Our nursing score features a host of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next best category was long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat badly. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 95.27273 percent of its patients, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, we awarded this facility a grade of D for short-term care. This is the facility's worst category rating. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to judge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Given its poor rating in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this facility offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
