Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned an impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with a grade of A-. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Our nursing grade is mostly based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed is short-term care. This facility's was given an abysmal short-term care grade where it was given an F. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations 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 last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 2.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, this facility really did not fare very well in this area either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated just 82.8125 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
