Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a relatively impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our more favorable scores in that category with a B. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that had a long list of severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Nursing ratings are primarily based on a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. With our short-term care score, we strive to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. As you might expect, we found that this place provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. The final measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its patients returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we graded was long-term care. It received a lowly F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility did not perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 93.68687 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we expected but still a respectable figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
