Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Inspection scores weigh a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of long-term care. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 58.314857 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than average. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care. This facility was given a poor grade of F in this category. In the area of short-term care, we try to qualify measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2.6 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
