Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection ratings are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This tells you CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
We also awarded this facility a grade of C for our nursing rating. Nursing ratings are primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is a very low figure. Finally, nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is generally a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a facility provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was short-term care. This facility's received a rock-bottom short-term care grade where it was given a lowly F. Short-term care scores are critical for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. 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 measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next category, this nursing home really did not fare very well in this category either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is about as terrible as it gets. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated just 83.56644 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
