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. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This indicates inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Lastly, we want to point out that this place has been assessed government fines in recent years. Fortunately these were on the lower end of the spectrum. However, this is still not what we hoped to see.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an D. Our nursing score considers several datapoints. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its short-term care grade, which is not one of our better scores. In calculating our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is frequently a fair measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we looked at in this category is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was long-term care, where this nursing home received a rock bottom grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is obviously very concerning. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. We were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 88.11881 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit less than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
