Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it actually received an impressive nursing score this year. We gave it a B+ in this category. We looked at the qualifications of nurses at the facility, in addition to the quantity of hours the nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area turned out to be short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. With our short-term care grade, we strive to create a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.

Unfortunately, with a grade of D in the inspection category, this facility performed relatively poorly in that area. One of the most significant factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We would scrutinize the severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was assessed one category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst deficiencies. These categories mean that inspectors identified a deficiency which places resident health or safety in immediate jeopardy. Finally, we also would like to point out that this facility received significant government fines recently in excess of $50,000. This often suggests that CMS inspectors became fed up after multiple years of bad health inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, where this facility received a very poor score in this area also. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously very concerning. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 96.73913 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
