Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility an abysmal overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a reliable indicator that a facility has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
This facility's next best category was inspections, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our inspection grades factor in many items found on the facility's recent inspection reports. If you find severe deficiencies on the inspection reports, this is typically a bad sign. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This particular nursing home had 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines recently of over $100,000. This generally signifies that a nursing home'sbad track record spanned multiple years.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we assessed was short-term care, in which this nursing home received an F. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this facility provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated just 67.54717 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
