Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility well overall, we want to point out its decent grade of B- in the category of nursing. The nursing score is based on quite a few factors, but the most important consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. In calculating our short-term care grades, we analyze the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This area is often a solid assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

This facility was given its third highest category score in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is an acceptable score. Our long-term care scores are critical for people requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they posed a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, CMS cited this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. Hopefully, its performance improves in the future, but until then we simply can't recommend this facility.
