Short-term Care Quality
On top of receiving a poor overall grade, we also gave this nursing home weak scores in our categories. It received a lowly D for its short-term care rating, which was its highest category. In our short-term care score, we strive to forge a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its score in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an F. Our nursing score weighs a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We found that this facility administered the vaccine to only 90.27356 percent of its residents, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
The last category we looked at was inspections. This nursing home did not receive positive government inspection reports in recent years. As a result, we gave it an F here. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this poor of an inspection rating. We recommend you pay close attention to the severity of those deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies by CMS. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Finally, we also need to point out that this place received large government fines recently in excess of $50,000. This typically means that CMS inspectors became fed up after multiple years of failed government inspections.
