Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our nursing category. Our nursing grade considers a number of datapoints. The most heavily weighted one is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to find that this facility earned a solid short-term care grade this year. We gave it a C in this area. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This place received a lowly F for its inspection grade. This is a particularly important category. Scores in this range often point to some red flags on the facility's government inspection reports. We would advise paying special attention to any deficiencies on a facility's inspection reports when it receives this bad of an inspection grade. We suggest you pay close attention to the level of severity of the deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate that they caused a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, we want to draw your attention to the fact that this place received significant government fines in recent years amounting to over $100,000. This typically indicates that a facility's bad performance spanned multiple years.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is long-term care. We gave it an F in this category, which is a poor score. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. One of the data points we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. We were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 86.86441 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
