Registered Staff Hours
We just could not find anything positive to say about this nursing home. It received a just D in the area of nursing. Unfortunately, this ended up being its best score. When determining our nursing ratings, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. For facilities with bad inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This particular facility was hit with one category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies identified by the government inspectors had the potential to cause actual harm to residents. Lastly, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This usually suggests that a poor performance has been an issue for several years.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care. This facility's was given a poor short-term care grade where it was given a lowly F. With our short-term care score, we endeavor to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Based on its poor grade in this category, we weren't surprised to learn this nursing home provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last item we considered in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.1 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was long-term care. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in this category. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 94.117645 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
