Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this facility highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its nearly flawless government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an A- in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the road grade in the area of short-term care, with a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing category assesses a handful of datapoints, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these datapoints to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is long-term care, in which this facility received a poor score in this category also. We gave it an F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 96.884735 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
