Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. There are many factors within this grade. Many of these criteria relate to levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did very well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a protocol of moving patients more frequently.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care rating and that actually turned out to be its second best category. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's third best score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
In the final category of inspections, this facility fared very poorly. It received an F in our inspection category. This is the most heavily weighted category in our grading system. When a facility has this poor of an inspection score, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This facility had 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This often means that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.
