Long-term Care Quality
Even though this facility's overall grade was terrible, it actually didn't perform quite as poorly in long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that area, which isn't bad. Unfortunately, this was not enough to spare its otherwise weak profile. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 67.86389 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a bit less than average. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing scores are primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility wound up receiving a bottom of the barrel score in our short-term care area. It was given an F in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Given its abysmal grade in this area, we weren't shocked to find that this place offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care score.
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. For nursing homes with poor inspection ratings, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
