Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This indicates that CMS didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Nursing scores are based in large part on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only earned a D for its short-term care score, which is not a very good score. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. Based on its abysmal grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this place offered far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is long-term care. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that category. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We found that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 83.24325 percent of its residents, which is somewhat alarming. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
