Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a horrible overall score, we gave it an A for our inspections score. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively favorable report.
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score and that actually ended up being its second most favorable category. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its poor grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn this place provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. The nursing rating analyzes a handful of subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is long-term care, where this facility was given a rock bottom grade here as well. It received a lowly F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 90.03558 percent of its residents. This is multiple points lower than average. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
