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. We believe that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing scores are largely tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of long-term care, this facility received a grade of just D in that area. When facilities receive this kind of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 76.01881 percent of its residents. This is multiple points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well 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 feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is short-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that area. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. With its weak score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
