Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest category is short-term care, but it nevertheless earned a grade of just D in that category. This still happens to be a relatively poor score. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. With a score of this caliber in this category, we weren't shocked to find that this nursing home was well below average in many staffing metrics we looked at. It offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The last measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we looked at is long-term care. This nursing home's received a bottom of the barrel long-term care grade where it was given an F. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 84.41558 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
The final category we analyzed was nursing. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in that area. Our nursing rating consists of many data points, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
