Registered Staff Hours
Sadly, we didn't have any favorable things to write about this nursing home's overall grade or its other ratings. Its best area is the area of inspections. However, with a grade of just D in this category, it still performed poorly. Our inspection scores account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. You should be especially cautious when considering a nursing home that has severe deficiencies on its inspection reports. This particular nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we can say is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this place was assessed large government fines recently of over $100,000. This typically suggests that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.
We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Another concern is the F this nursing home was given in the category of long-term care. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 92.46753 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was short-term care, where this facility was given a rock bottom grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is definitely somewhat alarming. In our short-term care score, we strive to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Based on its score in this category, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the data we assessed. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
