Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this place a good overall score, we actually gave it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a B+. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had too many deficiencies. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. It actually performed better than most nursing homes in this category. Nursing homes that do well in long-term care typically provide patients with more supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.260864 percent of its patients, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility's was given a bottom of the barrel short-term care grade where it was given an F. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other licensed professionals. This rating is generally a useful assessment of a facility's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually 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.
The next category we graded was nursing. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is a poor grade. Our nursing grade analyzes several subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. 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 looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
