Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this nursing home overall, we awarded it a grade of A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that have too many severe deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was awarded its second highest category score in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a C in this category, which is a respectable grade. Our long-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's amount of care. This means a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. We scrutinized the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the number of hours those nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this category. This nursing home provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This figure is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was short-term care, in which this facility received a rock bottom grade in this area also. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. In crafting these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a barometer for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Given its poor score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place offers substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
