Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines.

Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our short-term care rating and that actually ended up being its second most favorable score. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most important for people requiring a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical nursing home. The last metric we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The last area we rated is nursing, which ended up being this nursing home's worst category. We gave this facility a D in this area. Our nursing grade assesses the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
