Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a fairly impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable scores in that category with a B. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our nursing score is primarily associated with a facility's nurse staffing. This particular facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This statistic is far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second lowest score is short-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that area. This is a well below average grade. Short-term care grades are critical for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Considering its weak rating in this area, we were not surprised to find this facility offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility vaccinated 96.265564 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
