Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a horrible overall grade, we gave it an A- for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem 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.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to find that this facility received a solid long-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in this area. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. Once we concluded our assessment of the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated only 78.52349 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. The nursing score weighs a handful of subcategories, most of which are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care. This facility received a rock bottom grade of F in that category. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Given 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 physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
