Registered Staff Hours
While we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable nursing grade of B-. There are quite a few subcategories included in this grade. Most of these datapoints reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Lastly, nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable category was short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 6.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. With facilities that received this bad of an inspection score, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies by CMS.
