Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was as bad as it gets, it performed well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most respectable category is short-term care, but it nevertheless received a grade of just D in that category. This still happens to be a relatively poor score. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To offer high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The final datapoint we considered 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 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that category. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.43503 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is more than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
