Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to point out its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care score and that actually ended up being its next highest category. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 29.090908 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility received just a D in this category. Our short-term care scores are critical for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The last area we scored is nursing. This nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. This place also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based metrics to go along with its low nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of patients experiencing pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This place was at approximately 150 percent of the national average in this statistic.
