Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our best scores. Inspection ratings are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This place was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B. It actually outpaced most facilities in this area. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this nursing home a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. Short-term care ratings are crucial for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final metric we looked at in this category is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home.
Turning to the fourth area, this nursing home really didn't fare well here either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing score considers a number of factors. The most important factor is the number of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
