Registered Staff Hours
Even though we graded this facility extremely poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a B- in this category. The nursing rating includes many datapoints, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this nursing home received a reasonably solid short-term care grade this year. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to create a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this place's inspection grade where it received an F. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We recommend you scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home had 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is long-term care, in which this facility received a poor grade here as well. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home gave the vaccine to 94.954124 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
