Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a list of deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category is its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of B-. Our long-term care grade focuses on a nursing home's assistance with daily living rather than the highly skilled therapy or healthcare services that are critical to a rehabilitation facility. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Unfortunately, this facility vaccinated only 74.747475 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility was given just a D in that category. In crafting these short-term care scores, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. 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 item we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.4 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.
The next category we scored is nursing, in which this nursing home received a rock bottom grade here as well. We gave it an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously very concerning. There are several data points within this area. Many of the factors are tied to staffing levels. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
