Registered Staff Hours
Even though we gave this nursing home an abysmal overall grade, we gave it a B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating analyzes many components, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility supplies enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't rate too badly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a C in that area, which ended up being among its more favorable scores. Our short-term care scores are arguably most important for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.

Among this facility's alarming category grades was an F for its inspection grade. More often than not, this means we found some red flags on the facility's inspection reports. When a place has this poor of an inspection score, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only positive thing we can say is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they created a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we also would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was assessed significant government fines recently totaling over $100,000. This often signifies that a nursing home's poor track record spanned more than one year.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is long-term care. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in that area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 60.606064 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
