Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

Our short-term care grade is typically used to grade a facility's rehabilitation services To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to offer higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Considering its abysmal grade in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this place offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
The last area we rated is nursing. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is a very poor score. Our nursing rating analyzes the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of licensure of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
