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 was given its next best category score in the area of long-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Long-term care grades are generally used to gauge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. Once we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 98.21616 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's third best score was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. In crafting our short-term care scores, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place was below average in multiple staffing areas we focus on. It offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
The last area we rated is nursing. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is a poor score. This is certainly a significant disappointment. The nursing grade includes quite a few factors, many of which are based on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is an alarmingly low total. To go along with its low totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing ratings. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This place had more pressure ulcers and falls than the average facility.
