Registered Staff Hours
Unfortunately, we did not have many positive things to say about this nursing home's overall grade or its category grades. However, with just a D in this area, it still performed relatively poorly. When computing a facility's nursing score, we consider the amount of time nurses are with residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Among this nursing home's alarming grades was an F for its inspection rating. Typically, this means we found some major red flags on its inspection reports. For nursing homes with bad inspection grades, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was assessed 8 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we would like to point out that this place received large government fines recently of over $50,000. This often suggests that inspectors became frustrated after several years of failed inspections.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home received an F. Long-term care ratings of this caliber 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. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 87.04663 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.06 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that area. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types 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. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
