Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in this category. Sadly, this wound up being one of its best areas. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in long-term care it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to a relatively low 65.6 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.

With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel score. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is more often than not a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. 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 measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
