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 gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care rating and that actually wound up as its next highest category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. With a grade in this range for this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in two of the key staffing figures we assess. It provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist 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 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing category is based on quite a few factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is long-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 91.87192 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be slightly below what we were hoping for but still a decent figure. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
