Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned an impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A-. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of short-term care, this facility was given a grade of just D in that area. Sadly, this wound up being one of its best areas. With our short-term care category, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below average.

This facility offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the last area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 97.9021 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
