Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this place a good overall score, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest score is long-term care, but it nevertheless earned just a D in that category. This ended up being a well below average grade. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, we awarded this facility a grade of D for our short-term care category. This was the facility's weakest category grade. In determining our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is generally a fair assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. The final statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 3.9 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
