Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection grades weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This facility had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means 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.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only earned a D for its long-term care score, which is actually one of its better category scores. When facilities receive a grade in this range in long-term care it typically means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished assessing the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 91.08635 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category was short-term care, where it received just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. With our short-term care assessment, we attempt to create a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this place provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home.
Turning to the next category, this facility didn't fare very well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
