Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of C. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the number of hours the nurses were with residents, in calculating our score in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this area. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can often be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of turning patients more often.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. In our short-term care grade, we attempt to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, we awarded this facility a D for our long-term care category. This was the nursing home's weakest category rating. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. We were a bit concerned this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 88.84297 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
