Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This means that it dodged the more significant categories of deficiencies. Lastly, this nursing home was cited by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. This is generally a really bad sign. We would never recommend this facility.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's abysmal short-term care grade where it was given an F. In crafting our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With its abysmal score in this area, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who returned 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 patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated just 65.34296 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
The last area we graded is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel score. Our nursing score assesses many components, but the primary one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
