Registered Staff Hours
We couldn't find anything favorable to say about this facility. It received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this turned out to be its best score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility had 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently of more than $100,000. This often suggests that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for more than one year.
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. Nursing grades are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total.

Long-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of long-term care. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96.32653 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
