Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was rock bottom, it didn't perform as badly in nursing. We gave it a C for that area. The nursing grade weighs several subcategories. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. Although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a system of turning a resident more frequently.
As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this nursing home's bottom of the barrel overall grade. It received a grade of C in this category. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This indicates that inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent danger to patient health or safety. Lastly, we do need to note that this facility has received government fines in recent years. Fortunately these fines were on the lower end of the spectrum. That said, this is still not what you hoped to see.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in that category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 80.66038 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated was short-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that category. In the category of short-term care, we try to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. With a score in this range for this category, we were not surprised to learn this facility was below average in several staffing figures we looked at. The nursing home supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.4 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
