Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a horrible overall score, we gave it an A- for our inspections score. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's second highest category was long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Facilities that receive this type of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 63.942307 percent of its residents, which is well below average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are probably more critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this area, we were not surprised to discover this facility was well below average in several staffing figures we looked at. It offered substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The final category we assessed is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is a very poor grade. When computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
