Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This is due to the facility receiving a decent inspection report this year. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this facility an D. There are a variety of factors within this area. Many of the factors relate to levels of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not a very good score. Our short-term care ratings are arguably most critical for patients requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its abysmal score in this category, we weren't shocked to learn this facility offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this facility received a rock bottom grade here also. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is obviously a major disappointment. In a long-term care environment, the primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is better than the majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
