Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable nursing rating this year. We gave it a C in that category. In calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses are caring for residents and the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, nursing ratings also factor in quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its residents.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which turns out to be one of its more favorable category grades. Our short-term care grades are likely more meaningful for people needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this place provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Turning to our final category of inspections, this facility received a grade that's as bad as it gets. We weight this category more heavily than our other categories. For facilities that received this poor of an inspection rating, we recommend scrutinizing the severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This particular nursing home had a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more serious categories of deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies identified by inspectors had the potential to pose actual harm to patients. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this place received large government fines recently amounting to more than $100,000. This typically suggests that a facility's poor track record spanned several years.
