Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection scores are based on items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care grade, which is actually one of its better category scores. Short-term care grades are typically used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Based on its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing rating analyzes quite a few datapoints, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given a very poor score in this area also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to only 80.10753 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
