Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable short-term care rating this year. We gave it a grade of B- in that area. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. This nursing home provides more services with physical therapists and registered nurses than most nursing homes we looked at. This is usually a favorable sign. The final measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing scores are largely associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat discouraging figure which is well below the national average. Lastly, although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality
Our third category we analyzed was long-term care, where this facility was given an F. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 55.97826 percent of its patients. This is pretty significantly lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
In our final category of inspections, this nursing home received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this grade more heavily than other categories. For places with bad inspection ratings, you should scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we also want to point out that this nursing home was assessed large government fines in recent years exceeding $50,000. This often indicates that CMS inspectors grew tired after several years of bad health inspections.
