Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
We were also surprised to find that this facility received a decent nursing grade this year. We gave it a grade of C in that category. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care rating, which is well below average in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 88.64266 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit less than what we were hoping for. Surprisingly, this facility actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we rated was short-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in this area. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we considered in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.9 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.
