Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that had too many deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest score is short-term care, but it still received just a D in that category. This is still a well below average grade. In our short-term care score, we attempt to forge a sound measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.

We were stunned to find that this nursing home also excelled in the area of nursing. We gave it an impressive grade of D for that category, which is one of our best grades. There are a variety of factors within this category. Many of the criteria are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. 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 calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the next area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in long-term care it generally means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 93.333336 percent of its residents. This is somewhat less than we expected but still a decent figure. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
