Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home fared well in the area of short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B for that area. Our short-term care ratings are likely most critical for residents needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 6.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing scores are mostly based on a facility's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a low total compared to most other nursing homes. Lastly, our nursing scores also consider quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not one of our better scores. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to only 83.072105 percent of its patients, which is somewhat alarming. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
The final category we assessed was inspections. This facility did not receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we had to give it an F in this category. When a facility has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This facility was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that the government inspectors uncovered a deficiency which places resident safety or health in imminent danger. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines of over $100,000. This often suggests that a nursing home's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.
