Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
The second best area we awarded this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development was the F this facility received in the category of long-term care. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home'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 residents. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.36735 percent of its patients, which is higher than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
The next category we assessed was nursing, where this nursing home was given a poor grade in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When computing a facility's nursing rating, we weigh the number of hours nurses are with patients as well as the levels of training of the nurses. This particular facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is far below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
