Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of C. Inspection scores are based on many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but we were relieved to find that none were category G through L deficiencies. This indicates that this facility avoided the more significant classes of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's second best score is short-term care. As it turns out, with a D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify measures of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Given its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this place was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an F. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 91.07143 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a reasonably acceptable figure. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
The next category we graded was nursing. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category, which is a very poor grade. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we assess the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
