Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection ratings are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We would not recommend this facility under any circumstance.

Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility received just a D in this area. As it turns out, this ended up being one of its better features. In computing these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Considering its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

The third area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility's received a low-end long-term care score where it was given an F. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 85.87571 percent of its patients. This is many points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
Switching gears to the fourth category, this nursing home really did not perform very well in this area either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. Nursing grades are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This place averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average.
