Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a fairly impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable grades in that area with a B+. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Long-term care ratings of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 51.304344 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Another issue was the F this nursing home was given in the category of short-term care. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a grade this poor for this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this facility was below average in two of the key staffing areas we looked at. It offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
The next area we graded is nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that category. Our nursing score features a host of factors. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This number is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
