Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall score. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that had too many severe deficiencies. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a grade of B-. In our short-term care category, we seek to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we look at the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care score. This is not one of our better scores. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the nursing home is not as well-staffed. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated only 63.75465 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
The last category we assessed is nursing, which ended up being a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a D in our nursing category. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
