Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a decent short-term care rating this year. We gave it a C in that category, which was the closest thing to a bright spot we can find for this nursing home. In our short-term care rating, we strive to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
Unfortunately, this facility earned an F for its inspection score. This is a very important category. Grades in this range generally point to some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. For places that received this bad of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular facility was assessed 7 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, we would like to point out that this place was assessed large government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This usually suggests that a facility'spoor track record spanned more than one year.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. There are many factors included in this grade. Many of these subcategories relate to staffing levels. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, this nursing home really didn't perform very well in this area either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to only 60.248444 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
