Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to point out its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was its short-term care score, where it was awarded a grade of C. Our short-term care grade is commonly employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. We found that it performed much better in this metric with 58 percent of its patients returning home. For most nursing homes, fewer than half of their short-term residents are able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest area was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are more meaningful for those in need of more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 88.31168 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be significantly lower than what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Moving on to our final category, this nursing home did not perform well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This place offered a meager 3.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. In addition to being below average in nursing hours per resident, this nursing home also had poor marks in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing scores. We looked at the percent of patients sustaining major falls and pressure ulcers. This facility was at roughly 1.5 times the national average in both of these statistics. This is a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores and falls are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These scores helped pull down this nursing home's nursing grade significantly.
