Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
The next highest area we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to only 80.379745 percent of its residents. Fortunately, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which is not a score to write home about. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. With its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Switching gears to the final area, this facility really didn't perform very well here either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
