Long-term Care Quality
Neither this facility's overall grade nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. Its best category was long-term care, but even there we gave it a grade of just D. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.48485 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest category is short-term care, but even there it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is still a relatively poor grade. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is frequently a useful assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. With a score of this caliber for this area, we weren't shocked to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we assess. It provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

An F in this category is typically a signal that we found some red flags on the facility's inspections. When a place has this bad of an inspection grade, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies by CMS. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we also would like to point out that this place received large government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This generally signifies that a nursing home's poor performance has been an issue for multiple years.
Switching gears to our next area, this nursing home really didn't perform well in this area either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets.

This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings.
