Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score 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. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the area of long-term care, where it received a B-. In computing our long-term care grades, we look at the assistance with daily living received by the nursing home's patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 95.184135 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. In computing a nursing home's nursing grade, we consider the amount of time nurses commit to residents and the level of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided only 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the fourth area, this nursing home did not perform very well in this category either. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This score is typically a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. With its poor grade in this category, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.8 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
