Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. 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
We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this nursing home received a decent long-term care rating in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in this area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 96.79487 percent of its patients. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. With only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was short-term care, where this facility was given an abysmal grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
