Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We would argue that one of the most important factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. This place received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's next best score was long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated just 86.41509 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our short-term care grade. This is well below average in this category. Our short-term care scores are crucial for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its patients returning home.
The last category we analyzed was nursing, which ended up being a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for nursing. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
