Long-term Care Quality
Although we gave this place an awful overall score, we gave it a slightly better grade of B- for long-term care. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.823524 percent of its residents. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's poor short-term care grade where it was given a lowly F. In the category of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Given its score in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either.

For places with poor inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their inspection reports. This particular nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Lastly, we need to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines recently of more than $100,000. This often indicates that a nursing home's poor performance spanned several years.
Moving on to the final area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as terrible as it gets. Our nursing grade looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
