Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were category G through L deficiencies. This tells you this facility avoided the more ominous categories of deficiencies. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this facility's host of abysmal scores was its F in the category of short-term care. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated only 68.341705 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
