Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means this facility avoided the more significant categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category was long-term care, but it nevertheless earned a grade of just D in that category. This turns out to be a well below average grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 88.26087 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. When calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that category. In our short-term care assessment, we try to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Given its poor rating in this area, we were not shocked to learn this facility offers substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
