Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. The nursing rating consists of quite a few factors, many of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below average. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't rate terribly in the area of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which happens to be another one of its more favorable scores. In our long-term care score, we analyze the sheer quantity of services provided by a nursing home, as well as some quality metrics. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility an F in the area of short-term care. Short-term care grades are often employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Given its weak grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn this nursing home provides substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
In our last category of inspections, this nursing home received an F in this area. When a place has this poor of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
