Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Our inspection ratings 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 should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care rating and that actually wound up as its second most respectable score. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 84.76821 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of short-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that category. Short-term care grades are often used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. With a grade this poor for this category, we were not shocked to find this facility was below average in multiple staffing metrics we looked at. It offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
The final area we assessed is nursing, where this facility received a rock bottom grade here as well. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. Our nursing grade weighs a number of data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
