Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A in this category. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only received a D for its long-term care rating, which is actually one of its higher category scores. Long-term care grades of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 87.85715 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing rating considers several subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility didn't fare well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grades are presumably most important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
