Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B+. Our inspection grades are tied to several pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. The nursing grade assesses a handful of datapoints, but the primary one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
Our next category we looked at was short-term care, in which this facility was given an F. In computing these short-term care scores, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our purpose is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Considering its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is long-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. Facilities that do not score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility vaccinated just 53.602303 percent of its residents, which is somewhat concerning. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
