Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable grades in that area with a B. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a list of deficiencies flagged. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care score, which turns out to be one of its better category grades. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing score weighs several components, many of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This particular place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This statistic is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was long-term care, in which this nursing home received a rock bottom grade in this area as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. Long-term care scores 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. After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 80.228134 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
