Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in categories G through L. This means that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This figure is far below the national average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

This area is frequently a fair measure of the nursing home's ability to rehabilitate patients. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community.

The next area we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home was given an abysmal grade in this category as well. It received an F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility vaccinated just 57.216496 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations.
