Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than the place's overall score. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second highest area was its short-term care grade, where it received a C. In calculating our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what effect this had on quality of care. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing grade is primarily associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was long-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. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care ratings. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.93388 percent of its patients, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
