Registered Staff Hours
This facility's grades were horrible across the board. We especially want to point out its inspection grade where it received an F. This isn't a good sign for its inspection reports. When a facility has this bad of an inspection score, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular facility had one category G through L deficiency, which are among the more severe deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had the potential to cause actual harm to residents. In addition to having severe deficiencies, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. With our short-term care score, we try to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 95.612434 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility really did not perform very well here either. With a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our nursing category consists of many data points, most of which are tied to quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
