Although we gave this place a terrible overall grade, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is due to the nursing home receiving a decent government inspection report this year. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that had a long list of deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable report.

Sadly, this nursing home's next most favorable score was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this area, it still fared relatively poorly. Our short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in multiple staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. The nursing grade is based on quite a few components, however, the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 2.6 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is long-term care. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a very poor score. Facilities that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We weren't able to track down this place's vaccination data. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
