Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B for our nursing rating. The nursing rating consists of quite a few datapoints, but the most important one is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this facility a C for our short-term care score, which really isn't a bad grade. In the area of short-term care, we strive to evaluate measures of a facility's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in this category. When facilities receive this kind of score in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated only 43.421055 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
In the last category of inspections, this nursing home had an abysmal showing. It received an F in our inspection category. This is the most heavily weighted category in our grading system. You should pay close attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection score. We would pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we found is that none of the deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they posed a threat to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also want to point out that this place was assessed large government fines in recent years exceeding $50,000. This often suggests that CMS inspectors became frustrated after several years of failed inspections.
