Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this category most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to note that this nursing home was awarded strong long-term care marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in this area, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the facility's second highest grade. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically are well-staffed and provide extensive hands on care to patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
The next area we graded is nursing, which proved to be this facility's least impressive category. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is clearly a major concern. Our nursing score weighs many data points, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
