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 weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This facility was assessed 11 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This particular facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we graded is long-term care. This nursing home's was given a low-end long-term care grade where it was given an F. When nursing homes receive this type of grade in this category it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 93.359375 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is a bit less than we anticipated but still a decent figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was short-term care, where this nursing home received a poor grade in this category as well. We gave it a lowly F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. Short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. Given its weak grade in this category, we weren't surprised to find this nursing home provides significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
