Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly unfavorably overall, it actually earned a decent short-term care grade this year. We gave it a B in this area. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.

Long-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of long-term care. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 84.77367 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Moving on our last area of inspections, this nursing home received an F in this area. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home had a deficiency by CMS. We were relieved to find that it wasn't in a category that suggests that it caused a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility was assessed large government fines recently of over $100,000. This generally signifies that a facility's bad performance spanned several years.
