Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This is the result of the facility receiving a quality inspection report this year. Our inspection scores are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't fare poorly in the category of long-term care. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C in that category, which ended up being among its better scores. Long-term care scores are meaningful for individuals looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid figure. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we looked at was short-term care. This facility's was given an unfortunate short-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Short-term care ratings are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a grade in this range in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this facility was below average in the two key staffing metrics we assess. It supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4 percent of its residents returning home.
Moving on to our final area, this facility really did not perform well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. Our nursing score includes numerous data points. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This particular facility offered just 0.1 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these data points to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
