Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. To our surprise, this place was hit with a category J through K deficiency, which are some of the worst categories of deficiencies. This generally means the government inspectors identified a deficiency which places patient safety or health in imminent danger. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's second highest category was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. In determining our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.69281 percent of its residents, which is a very respectable total. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
The last area we looked at is nursing, in which this facility received a bottom of the barrel grade in this category also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major concern. Our nursing grade analyzes the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of skill of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
