Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a poor overall rating, we awarded it a somewhat respectable grade in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B-. This was quite a bit better than its other categories. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Short-term Care Quality
The second best area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a B-. In the category of short-term care, we seek to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
The next best category we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for individuals in need of more traditional services associated with personal care. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the vaccine to a relatively low 63.92857 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final category we analyzed was nursing, which proved to be this nursing home's worst area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few data points, however, the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
