Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a poor overall grade, we gave it a B+ for our inspections rating. This is the result of the facility receiving a quality government inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a D for its long-term care score, which ended up being one of its more favorable category grades. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. In calculating these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. With its score in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The next category we rated was nursing, where this nursing home was given a rock bottom score in this area also. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. When calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
