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 grades are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care score. Our short-term care ratings are probably more critical for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the data we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this area, which is a poor grade. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 96.75516 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
