Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually received an impressive short-term care rating this year. We awarded it a grade of B+ in this area. Short-term care grades are often used to score a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. It doesn't appear that this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 7.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Among this nursing home's alarming grades was an F for its inspection rating. Typically, this means we found some major red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. For nursing homes with bad inspection scores, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 17 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 60.995853 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than what we expected. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
The last area we rated is nursing, in which this nursing home received a very poor score in this area as well. We gave it an F in this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. In determining a facility's nursing grade, we consider the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
