Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable grades in that area with a B. Perhaps the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home an F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are probably more critical for folks needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.

Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home received a rock bottom grade of F in that category. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 91.4966 percent of its residents, which is somewhat below what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
