Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category typically avoided the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a positive grade in our long-term care category. We gave this facility an above average grade of B in this category. Nursing homes that do well in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to residents. Once we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 96.57535 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a life threatening illness for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home doesn't leave its residents vulnerable. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Next we wanted to quickly point out one of this facility's major weaknesses. In the area of nursing care, we gave this nursing home a lowly grade of F. Our nursing grade consists of quite a few datapoints, most of which are associated with quantities of nurse staffing. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's worst area. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. With its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care score.
