Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B for our nursing rating. This score is quite a bit more impressive than its overall grade. When determining our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This facility performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a place has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this area. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for people needing more traditional services related to personal care. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 98.545456 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

This nursing home received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. Generally, you should be especially cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This facility was assessed one deficiency by CMS. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in a category that suggests that it caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we also need to point out that this place was assessed large government fines of more than $100,000. This generally indicates that a bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was short-term care. It received an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is frequently a meaningful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that 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 patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
