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's third best score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still fared relatively badly. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to forge a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. The last measure we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last category, this nursing home really didn't fare very well in this category either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this facility vaccinated 96.44809 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
