Registered Staff Hours
Although this facility's overall grade was terrible, it didn't perform as badly in nursing. In fact, we awarded it a C for this area. We looked at the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't rate poorly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a C in that category, which ended up being among its more respectable scores. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category is long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a well below average grade. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we looked at was inspections. This facility did not receive positive government inspection reports in recent years. In fact, we had to give it an F here. When a facility has this bad of an inspection grade, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This particular facility was hit with 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, 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.
