Registered Staff Hours
While this place'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 grade of C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to point out this nursing home's abysmal long-term care score where it received a lowly F. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 21.568628 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Another issue was the F this facility was given in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. With its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
The last category we looked at was nursing, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this category as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. The nursing grade consists of quite a few data points, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
