Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care grade this year. We gave it a C in that area, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we could find for this facility. Our short-term care grades are presumably most critical for people in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
Interestingly, this nursing home's abysmal overall score can't really be attributed to its inspection reports. We awarded it a C for inspections. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in category J, K or L. This tells you inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to put resident safety or health in imminent harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only received a D for its long-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we looked at was nursing, which was a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of D for our nursing category. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in computing our score in this area. 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 assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
