Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This place had 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you this facility avoided the more ominous classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing score is largely associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 scores. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility ended up receiving a rock-bottom grade in our short-term care area. It was given an F in this category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we size up a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This category is often a fair measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the final area, this facility really did not fare well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
