Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are heavily correlated with levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is far below average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a patient more frequently.
Sadly, this facility's second best category was inspections, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. One of the most significant factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years in excess of $50,000. This often indicates that government inspectors became frustrated after several years of bad health inspections.

Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 66.50943 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is quite a bit lower than average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.05 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is often a useful measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Considering its grade in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
