Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home favorably overall, we want to point out its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest category was its short-term care score, where it received a C. In our short-term care score, we seek to craft a fair measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care score. This is not one of our better scores. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. One of the factors we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 98.80597 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The last category we analyzed is nursing, turned out to be this facility's weakest area. We awarded this facility a D in this area. In computing our nursing scores, we analyze both nursing hours and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
