Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. In calculating these short-term care grades, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to devise a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Given its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this place was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. There are a host of subcategories included in this grade. Many of the datapoints are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed is long-term care, in which this nursing home received a rock bottom grade here also. It received an F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated just 41.904762 percent of its residents for 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 less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
