Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care rating, which was actually one of its better category grades. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for those needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 6.2 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse category is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 80.10753 percent of its residents, which is quite a bit lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
Turning to our fourth area, this facility did not perform very well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. There are numerous data points included in this area. Most of the data points relate to nurse staffing. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
