Registered Staff Hours
Even though we did not have many favorable things to say about this facility's overall score, it did receive a respectable nursing grade of B-. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this facility's more respectable category scores came in the category of short-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. Our short-term care grade is typically used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility received its next best category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a B- in this category, which is a decent score. Long-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's amount of nursing services. This includes a broad range of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 99.54751 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations 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. When a nursing home has this bad of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This particular facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to resident health or safety. 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.
