Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat 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.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a B- for its short-term care score, which isn't too bad of a score. Short-term care grades are generally employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 6.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating weighs a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This facility offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in this category. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 98.21959 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
