Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. There are quite a few subcategories within this category. Most of the subcategories relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Finally, while this nursing home got docked a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of our quality metrics. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.
This facility didn't receive favorable inspection reports in recent years. In fact, it received just a D for its inspection grade, which was unfortunately its second best category. One of the more important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident health or safety. 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.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are crucial for patients needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the data points we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 95.593216 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place also keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
