Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not complementary of this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Our inspection ratings are tied to datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This facility was hit with 9 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing score is mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality
The third best category we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed was long-term care, proved to be this facility's weakest category. We gave this facility a D in this category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. One of the statistics we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
