Short-term Care Quality
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it didn't perform terribly in our short-term care category. We gave it a grade of B- for that category, which isn't bad. Unfortunately, this was not enough to spare its overall profile. Our short-term care scores are likely more important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last measure we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing rating is largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this subcategory.

Long-term Care Quality
Another issue was the F this nursing home was given in the area of long-term care. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 87.17949 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
In our final category of inspections, this facility received a horrible grade. For places with poor inspection scores, you should focus on any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received large government fines totaling more than $100,000. This often means that a nursing home's poor performance spanned more than one year.
