Registered Staff Hours
This facility ended up receiving rock bottom scores in our assessment. Perhaps most alarmingly, it received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing scores are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 77.00259 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.

We also wanted to point out this place's inspection score where it received an F. This typically means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. When a nursing home has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This particular facility had 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 18 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care. It received a lowly F for this category, which is a poor grade. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Based on its weak score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this nursing home provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
