Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Without having access to all of the deficiency data for this nursing home, it was difficult to fully grade the place in terms of this category.
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating and that actually wound up as its next most respectable category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This area is often a solid assessment of a facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents that were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development was the F this facility received in the area of long-term care. Long-term care scores of this caliber 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. After considering the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 81.661896 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Turning to the last category, this nursing home didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. When computing our nursing scores, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
