Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform as badly in the area of nursing. In fact, we gave it a B- for that category. Our nursing score assesses the facility's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is well below average. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care rating and that actually wound up as its second most respectable score. Our short-term care grade is commonly used to score a facility's rehabilitation services. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. With its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next highest score was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. Long-term care grades in this range 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. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 60.887096 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
In our final area of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we heavily weight negative feedback in this category. You should pay special attention to any deficiencies on a nursing home's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they created a threat to resident health or safety. Finally, this facility also received 33 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.
