Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category grades was in the area of long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B+. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. Once we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 99.8538 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a life or death illness for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home does not roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. The nursing score analyzes many datapoints, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our final area, this nursing home really did not fare well. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this facility's poorest category. Our short-term care scores are crucial for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we were not stunned to find this facility was well below average in several staffing areas we assess. In fact, it offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.
