Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. This place was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care rating and that actually ended up being its next highest category. Our short-term care grade is generally used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to provide highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. With its score in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in this area. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
The next category we rated is nursing. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in that category. The nursing rating includes numerous data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This place offered only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
