Registered Staff Hours
On top of receiving a bad overall score, we also gave this nursing home terrible scores across the board in each of the categories. In fact, it only received a grade of just D for its inspections grade, which is its best area. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is actually one of its better category grades. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its weak rating in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this place offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth area, this facility didn't fare well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.66778 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
