Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall score wasn't a highlight, it actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing. We gave it a B- for that category. Our nursing grade is largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Finally, our nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable area ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was given a B-. Our short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable area was long-term care. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 83.333336 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In our final category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. Since this data is compiled by government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this category. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
