Registered Staff Hours
Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. This place's best area was inspections, but even here we gave it a D. This is a very poor grade. Inspection grades factor in many items on the nursing home's inspection reports. When you find too many deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is typically the worst sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This particular nursing home was assessed a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies found by inspectors had the potential to cause actual harm to patients. Finally, this facility also received 29 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to note that this facility was given an F for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care assessment, we attempt to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a bottom of the barrel grade in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this category. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.210144 percent of its patients. This is slightly less than we anticipated but still a decent figure. To our surprise, this facility actually 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. This is its best score in this category.
The final area we rated is nursing, in which this nursing home received an abysmal grade in this area also. We gave it an F in this category, which is definitely very concerning. We assessed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our grade in this category. This facility averaged a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
