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. Our inspection ratings are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't perform too badly in the area of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a C for that area, which ended up being another one of its more respectable scores. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is typically a solid assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 97.508896 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home also keeps its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Turning to the next area, this facility did not perform very well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade is based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with residents. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
