Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care score, which happens to be one of its better category grades. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 98.32776 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. The nursing grade includes several datapoints. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. 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. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the final area, this nursing home really did not fare very well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. With our short-term care rating, we try to craft a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. With a score this poor for this category, we were not shocked to find this facility was below average in many staffing areas we assess. In fact, it offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
