Long-term Care Quality
Even though we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned an impressive long-term care rating this year. We awarded it a grade of B in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility an D. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in determining our score in this area. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not one of our better scores. Short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its poor rating in this category, we weren't shocked to discover that this nursing home provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.
Moving on our final category of inspections, this nursing home received a horrible grade. For places that received this bad of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was assessed one deficiency by government inspectors. Fortunately, it was not in one of the categories that suggest that it created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we need to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This typically means that a nursing home's poor performance spanned several years.
