Registered Staff Hours
We were not high on this facility's overall grade or its category ratings. We gave it a D for our inspections rating and that actually turned out to be its highest grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this facility was awarded just a D in that category. As it turns out, this ended up being one of its better grades. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 6.954887 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly lower than the national average. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. With our short-term care grade, we strive to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Given its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
The next area we scored is nursing, in which this facility was given a very poor grade in this category also. It received an F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. The nursing grade consists of many components, many of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This particular place offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This statistic is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
