Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility an abysmal overall score, we gave it a B- for our nursing rating. The nursing score consists of a handful of factors, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a policy of moving a resident at least once a day.
Long-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this facility a C for our long-term care rating, which really isn't too bad of a score. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care provided by a facility, as opposed to more sophisticated services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.64158 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility was given just a D in this area. In computing our short-term care grades, we size up a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This score is generally a solid measure of a nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. As you might expect, we found that this place provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
Moving on our final category of inspections, this facility received a horrible grade. For places that received this poor of an inspection rating, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to resident safety or health. 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.
