Registered Staff Hours
Neither this nursing home's overall score nor its category grades gave us much to write home about. Its best category was inspections, but even here we gave it just a D. This is a very poor score. One of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. We suggest you pay close attention to the severity of the deficiencies. Tragically, this nursing home was assessed one category L deficiency. This type of deficiency indicates multiple widespread threats to resident safety or health. This type of deficiency is toxic to a nursing home's inspection rating. Finally, we want to point out that this place received large government fines totaling more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a poor performance spanned several years.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second most favorable category was short-term care, but it still earned a grade of just D in that category. This turns out to be a relatively poor score. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

After we finished assessing the volume of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.73046 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The next category we looked at is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a very poor grade. Our nursing rating is based on a handful of components, however, the primary one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
