Long-term Care Quality
Although we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall score, we awarded it a slightly better grade of B- for long-term care. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 93.95349 percent of its patients. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a C for its short-term care grade, which is not a bad grade. Short-term care scores are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. The nursing rating is based on several datapoints, but the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, although this place got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this statistic.
In the final category of inspections, this facility fared very poorly. Sadly, it received an F in our inspection category. With nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility had 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient safety or health. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received significant government fines in excess of $50,000. This usually means that CMS inspectors became fed up after several years of bad government inspections.
