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-. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. While this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of long-term care. When facilities receive this type of grade in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 53.87205 percent of its patients. This is pretty significantly lower than average. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Our short-term care grades are arguably more important for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical facility. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.8 percent of its patients returning home.
The last category we looked at is nursing. We gave it an F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. When determining our nursing grades, we weigh both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
