Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility 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 ratings weigh several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid facilities with too many deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next most favorable category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat badly. Short-term care grades are often employed to judge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. For prospective residents seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. After considering the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 97.89916 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we assessed was nursing. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in this area. There are a variety of criteria within this category. Most of the data points reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. 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. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
