Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall grade, we actually gave it a fairly respectable grade in nursing, where it received a B-. This was at least better than its other category scores. When computing our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care grade turns out to be one of its respectable grades. The nursing home received a grade of B- in this category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is more often than not a useful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third most favorable area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a B-. Our long-term care grade is used to assess a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 99.28571 percent of its residents. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Unfortunately, this facility did not receive a favorable inspection grade. We gave it just a just D in this category. Inspection ratings relate to a nursing home's government inspection reports. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. You should be most cautious when considering a facility with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
