Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite minor. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its second highest category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this nursing home a grade of B- in this category, which is a respectable grade. For residents in need of a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 53.890823 percent of its patients. This is several points below average. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its next most favorable category grade in the category of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this category, which is an acceptable score. In crafting these short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The last category we looked at is nursing. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. This is clearly a major disappointment. Nursing ratings are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. With a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
