Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We could not find anything positive to say about this place. It received just a D in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to grade a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to have highly scored rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest category is long-term care, but even there it earned a grade of just D in that category. This ended up being a relatively poor score. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 68.78172 percent of its patients, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.

This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
In our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. For nursing homes that received this poor of an inspection score, we recommend scrutinizing any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home was assessed 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they created a risk to patient safety or health. Finally, we need to point out that this facility received large government fines in recent years exceeding $50,000. This usually signifies that government inspectors became frustrated after several years of failed health inspections.
