Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a poor overall score, we also awarded this facility poor grades across the board in the various categories. In fact, it only received just a D for its inspections rating, which is its top category. Inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home had one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst deficiencies. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed large government fines of more than $50,000. This usually means that CMS inspectors grew tired after several years of failed health inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is actually one of its better category scores. Short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With its score in this category, we weren't surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The last datapoint we considered in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.

In addition, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 29.834253 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
The next area we looked at was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. Our nursing grade analyzes a handful of factors, most of which are based on quantities of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
