Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. Inspection scores are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable report.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to learn that this facility earned a decent short-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a B- in that category. In crafting our short-term care ratings, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is long-term care, in which this facility received a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. When nursing homes receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated only 49.456524 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
