Registered Staff Hours
Neither this nursing home's overall grade nor its category scores gave us much to write home about. This place's best category was nursing, but even there it received just a D. Nursing scores are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home averages 3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, which is below average. Unfortunately, this nursing home also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its weak nursing hour totals. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and we were very disappointed. This nursing home was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in this statistic. This is a bad sign in light of the fact that many bed sores could be avoided with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.
Sadly, this facility's second best category was inspections, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. We would pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe categories of deficiencies. These categories indicate that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had the potential to create actual harm to residents. Finally, this facility also received 34 substantiated complaints in recent years. This is yet another bad sign.

Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 75.757576 percent of its residents. This is quite a bit below what we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 1.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this nursing home did not perform very well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. With a grade this poor for this category, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was well below average in the two key staffing metrics we focus on. It offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 23 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
