Registered Staff Hours
While this place'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. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in categories G through L. This indicates that it dodged the more ominous categories of deficiencies. 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
We also wanted to point out that this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. In our short-term care grade, we seek to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing score looks at the facility's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of licensure of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we rated is long-term care. It received a lowly F in this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 96.15385 percent of its residents, which is an above average total. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
