Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a bottom of the barrel grade in our short-term care area. It received an F in this category. Our short-term care grades are based on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of long-term care. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.57447 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Turning to our last category, this facility didn't perform very well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. In calculating our nursing ratings, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home offered just 0.1 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This number is quite a bit below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
