Registered Staff Hours
Long-term Care Quality
While we graded this nursing home extremely poorly overall, it received a better long-term care score this year. We gave it a C in that area. Long-term care scores are vital for patients requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 77.54569 percent of its patients. This is multiple points less than average. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its residents 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
This facility also didn't rate too badly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a C for that area, which is another one of its more favorable grades. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below the national average.

Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we weigh the amount of time nurses spend with patients and the level of licensure of the nurses.

This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Turning the last category of inspections, we gave this facility a D for our inspection category. This proved to be this facility's weakest category. We take a poor grade in this category very seriously. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we also want to point out that this place received significant government fines of over $50,000. This usually suggests that inspectors became fed up after multiple years of bad health inspections.
