Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Even though this place's overall score was abysmal, it actually didn't perform terribly in short-term care. We awarded it a B- for that category, which is a decent score. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to save its overall profile. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is generally a useful measure of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
This nursing home really didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. We awarded it a C for that category. Other aspects of its profile were the source of its abysmal overall grade. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent danger to patient 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
Moving on to the fourth area, this nursing home didn't perform well here either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 86.666664 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
