Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This facility had 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was given a grade of just D in that area. As it turns out, this wound up being one of its better features. Our short-term care ratings are important for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this facility offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility provided the vaccine to just 69.117645 percent of its patients, which is a bit of a concern. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
The last category we looked at was nursing. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that category. The nursing score weighs several subcategories, many of which are associated with levels 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
