Registered Staff Hours
We couldn't find anything positive to say about this facility. It received just a just D in nursing. Unfortunately, this ended up being its best score. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses at the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses worked with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Sadly, this facility's second best category was inspections, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our inspection scores factor in many items on the nursing home's recent inspection reports. When you see too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is generally the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular facility was hit with one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that inspectors uncovered a deficiency which places patient health or safety in imminent jeopardy. Finally, we would like to point out that this nursing home received significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This usually means that a facility'sbad track record spanned several years.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. As you might expect, we found that this facility provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final area, this nursing home did not perform well in this area either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.176956 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
