Registered Staff Hours
Even though we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B- for our nursing rating. This grade is better than its overall grade. Our nursing rating is based on several factors. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed very well in this subcategory. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as having a protocol of turning a patient more often.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category was its long-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for those needing more conventional services associated with personal care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 94.58128 percent of its patients, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

In computing our short-term care scores, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is frequently a useful assessment of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below the national average.
The final category we assessed is inspections. Unfortunately, this nursing home didn't receive glowing inspections in recent years. Consequently, we had to give it an F in this category. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection rating. We recommend you scrutinize the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we also would like to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This generally indicates that a nursing home's poor track record has been an issue for more than one year.
