Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility favorably overall, we want to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A+ in this category. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's second best category was long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared somewhat badly. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.38271 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quantity of nursing care available. 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 looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final category, this nursing home did not fare very well in this area either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. With its abysmal rating in this area, we weren't shocked to learn this place offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
