Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Surprisingly, this facility had a category J through K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. This typically means CMS found a deficiency which places patient safety or health in immediate jeopardy. 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
Unfortunately, this facility's next most respectable score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still fared relatively badly. Short-term care grades are generally employed to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have quality rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 94.90196 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. The nursing grade features many subcategories. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
