Registered Staff Hours
Although this facility's overall score was terrible, it actually performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B for that area, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these can be quite insignificant. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most respectable category is short-term care, but it still earned a grade of just D in that area. This still happens to be a well below average score. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This grade is generally a useful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.1 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second least favorable category is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 97.75281 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The next area we looked at is nursing. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is a very poor grade. We assessed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours the nurses spent with patients, in computing our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
