Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Nursing scores are primarily associated with a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a an abysmal grade in our short-term care category. It received an F in this category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Given its weak rating in this category, we were not shocked to find that this facility offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom grade in this category as well. We gave it a lowly F for this category, which is obviously very concerning. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 66.89189 percent of its residents. This is significantly below average. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
