Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We were not able to award this facility any respectable grades. We wanted to point out that it received an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for people seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score in this range for this category, we were not shocked to learn this nursing home was below average in two of the key staffing figures we focus on. It offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The last item we considered 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 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care grade.
We wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its inspection grade. An F in this category is particularly troublesome because it usually points to red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. For places that received this poor of an inspection score, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home was assessed a category J through K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. These categories mean that CMS identified a deficiency which places patient health or safety in imminent danger. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received significant government fines of more than $50,000. This typically suggests that CMS inspectors became frustrated after several years of bad health inspections.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing rating focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored was long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. 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. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility provided the vaccine to only 70.76923 percent of its patients, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
