Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our short-term care rating. In our short-term care category, we strive to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. We were surprised to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
As it turns out, its government inspection reports were not the source of this nursing home's rock bottom overall grade. In fact, it received a C in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you it avoided the more serious categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.

Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored was long-term care, in which this facility was given a rock bottom grade in this category also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 93.20388 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we anticipated but still a respectable figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
