Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we didn't have any favorable things to say about this facility's overall score or its category grades. Its best category was the area of short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of just D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. Considering its score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating is mostly associated with a facility's nurse staffing. With only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grade where it received a lowly F. This often means we found red flags on the inspection reports. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular nursing home was assessed one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies found by inspectors had potential to create actual harm to residents. On top of having severe deficiencies, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home didn't perform very well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 90.86956 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit less than average. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
