Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it earned an A. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a strong grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a B in this area, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it has plenty of staff and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 98.097824 percent of its patients. This is a proven method to minimize negative health outcomes for the elderly population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development is the F this facility was given in the area of short-term care. In our short-term care grade, we seek to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.2 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
The final area we assessed is nursing, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score in this category also. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. Our nursing score considers a variety of data points. The most important factor is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
