Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this facility a good overall score, we actually gave it a strong grade in the area of inspections, where it earned a B+. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a valuable barometer for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category is long-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that category. This is a well below average grade. If you are looking for services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care grades. One of the statistics we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Switching gears to the next area, we gave this facility a D for nursing. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Our nursing rating considers a variety of factors. The most heavily weighted one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
