Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we actually gave it a very strong grade in nursing, where it earned a grade of B. This is better than most nursing homes in this category. In determining a facility's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we also would like to point out that this facility received strong short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our better scores in this category, with a grade of B. This proved to be the nursing home's second best score. Our short-term care ratings are arguably more important for residents in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility submitted information on registered nurse or physical therapist staffing. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only earned a D for its long-term care score, which is well below average in this category. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 84.38662 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points less than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
Moving on the final category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection rating. When a facility has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This typically means that a bad performance has been an issue for more than one year.
