Registered Staff Hours
We simply could not find anything good to say about this nursing home. It received a D in the category of inspections. Sadly, this ended up being its best score. Inspection ratings factor in many items found on the nursing home's inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is typically a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility had 7 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed large government fines totaling over $100,000. This generally means that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for more than one year.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home was given an F for its short-term care score. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. With a grade in this range for this category, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was well below average in several staffing figures we focus on. It supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

The last area we looked at is long-term care. It received a lowly F in this area, which is an abysmal grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 76.108376 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
