Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our short-term care rating. In forming our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Unfortunately, this nursing home earned really poor government inspection reports in recent years, causing us to give them an F for inspections. An F in this category is usually a signal that we found some red flags on its inspection reports. For places with poor inspection ratings, you should really scrutinize any severe deficiencies found on their recent inspection reports. This nursing home had 3 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only favorable thing we can say is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that suggest they created a threat to resident safety or health. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received significant government fines in recent years totaling over $100,000. This typically signifies that a poor track record spanned multiple years.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. There are a host of factors within this grade. Many of the datapoints are tied to levels 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. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final area, this facility really did not fare very well in this category either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 97.60766 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
