Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades are tied to many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that receive favorable grades in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.

Short-term Care Quality
In our next category, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services To have highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to provide better levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Given its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we looked at the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The last category we graded was nursing. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is a poor score. This is obviously a significant concern. In computing our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
