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 would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This place had 8 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only received a D for its short-term care rating, which ended up being one of its more respectable category grades. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this facility provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. For prospective patients looking for a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than most nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
The next area we assessed was nursing. This facility received a poor grade of F in this category. When determining our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home averaged just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
