Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility extremely poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a B- in that category. The nursing score analyzes many factors, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to find that this facility earned a reasonably solid short-term care grade this year. We awarded it a C in this category. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only received a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 98.02469 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Turning the final category of inspections, this ended up being this facility's weakest link. Inspection grades are based on a nursing home's recent government inspection reports. We gave this nursing home a grade of just D in this category, which is a very poor grade. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. Generally, you should be most cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This particular facility had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we need to point out that this place was assessed large government fines of over $100,000. This typically indicates that a nursing home's bad performance spanned more than one year.
