Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this nursing home performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.
Interestingly, this nursing home's abysmal overall score can't really be attributed to its government inspection reports. We gave it a C for our inspections rating. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This indicates this facility avoided the more serious classes of deficiencies. 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.
