Short-term Care Quality
Even though this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care rating. We awarded it a C for that category, which is a decent score. That said, this was not enough to salvage its profile. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech 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 supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our long-term care rating, which is not too bad of a score. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 95.89041 percent of its patients. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this subcategory.
In our final category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. Since this information is compiled by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this area. For places with poor inspection ratings, you should really focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular facility had 3 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to patient health or safety. 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.
