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
We also wanted to note this nursing home's rock-bottom short-term care grade where it received a lowly F. Short-term care scores are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final metric we considered in this category is the percentage 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 poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

After looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.46667 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we graded is nursing. This nursing home was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. Our nursing rating includes many subcategories, but the main one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
