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 score analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides only 0 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to find that this facility earned a solid short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it provided 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 datapoint we considered in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a C for its long-term care score, which isn't a bad grade. In forming these long-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
In the last category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. This happens to be the most heavily weighted category in our overall scoring system. For facilities with poor inspection ratings, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident 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.
