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 B-. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Our nursing rating is primarily based on the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest score is short-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Short-term care scores are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, we awarded this facility a D for the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category rating. In a long-term care setting, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 95.899055 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
