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.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. Nursing homes that don't score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated only 37.461304 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in computing our score in this category. This nursing home offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is a very poor grade. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This area is considered to be a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation services. With its score in this area, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.8 percent of its residents returning home.
