Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than the nursing home's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's more favorable category scores was in the area of long-term care. This proved to be its second best category. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our long-term care scores are critical for people requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.085365 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed was short-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are probably more meaningful for folks needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The important question is whether this also affected quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
Turning to the last category, this facility did not fare very well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing grades are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
