Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Even though we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that area, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we could find for this place. Short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.
Sadly, this nursing home's next best category was inspections, but even there it earned just a D. This is still a very poor grade. Our inspection scores factor in many items on the facility's inspection reports. If you see too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. We were not able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.

Long-term Care Quality
Our third category we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility received an F. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated only 85.55241 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
The next category we assessed was nursing. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a rock bottom grade. The nursing score is based on many factors, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
