Registered Staff Hours
We could not find anything good to say about this place. It received a grade of just D in the area of inspections. Unfortunately, this ended up being its best score. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also would like to point out that this nursing home received significant government fines amounting to over $100,000. This usually suggests that a facility's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most respectable score is short-term care, but it still earned a grade of just D in that category. This still happens to be a well below average score. Our short-term care grades are probably most critical for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was long-term care. This nursing home's was given a bottom of the barrel long-term care grade where it was given a lowly F. For patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 95.84488 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
The last area we assessed is nursing. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a poor grade. Our nursing grade analyzes the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of the nurses and the amount of time spent with residents. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
