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. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This indicates that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to resident safety or health. 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
Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility received a grade of just D in this area. Sadly, this ended up being one of its better features. Our short-term care grade is often employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Considering its poor rating in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of long-term care. Facilities that receive this kind of score in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 51.136364 percent of its residents, which is a bit of a concern. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
The last area we graded was nursing. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. When determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
