Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors 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 aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of F. In determining our nursing grades, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 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 measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most meaningful for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. This means not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Considering its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we looked at. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was long-term care, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal score here as well. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 87.30159 percent of its residents. This is many points lower than the national average. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
