Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score and that actually ended up being its next most favorable score. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category likely don't provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes offer. One of the criteria we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 77.4799 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we graded was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for patients needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
