Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall grade. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
The next highest area we awarded this nursing home in any area came in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In computing our short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below average.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not a very good score. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinates 98.99497 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
The last category we graded was nursing. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is a poor grade. When calculating a nursing home's nursing rating, we look at the number of hours nurses are seeing patients and the level of skill of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
