Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a poor overall score, we also gave this place weak scores in our categories. In fact, it received just a D for its short-term care grade, which was its best grade. Our short-term care scores are crucial for patients looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this place offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Sadly, this facility's second best category was inspections, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This typically signifies that a nursing home'spoor track record spanned several years.

Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed.

We were a bit concerned this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 76.892426 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
