Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of C for our nursing rating. We scrutinized the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This facility provided just 0.1 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, nursing grades also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a place has quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
Unfortunately, this facility received an F for its inspection grade. This is a very important category. Grades in this range generally point to some red flags on the nursing home's inspection reports. With places that received this poor of an inspection score, we would scrutinize the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This facility was hit with a deficiency by CMS. Fortunately, it wasn't in one of the categories that suggest that it posed a risk to resident safety or health. Finally, we need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines recently of more than $100,000. This generally suggests that a facility'spoor performance spanned more than one year.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed is short-term care, where this nursing home received an F. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we assessed was long-term care. This facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 99.35065 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
