Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our best scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we awarded this nursing home an D. Our nursing score includes many factors, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care rating. This is not a very good score. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated just 89.850746 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care. This facility was given a very poor grade of F in this area. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
