Registered Staff Hours
We didn't have many positive things to say about this nursing home's overall grade or its category scores. Nevertheless, with just a D in this category, it still performed badly. Nursing grades are primarily based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. 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. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's inspection grades where it received an F. This generally means we found some red flags on the inspection reports. When a place has this bad of an inspection score, you should look for severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home had 10 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they caused a risk to resident health or safety. Lastly, we also would like to point out that this place was assessed significant government fines in recent years of more than $100,000. This typically suggests that a bad performance has been an issue for several years.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was long-term care, in which this facility received an F. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility gave the vaccine to a relatively low 72.37654 percent of its patients, which is well below average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final area, this nursing home really didn't perform very well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. In our short-term care rating, we try to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
