Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Perhaps the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't 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 necessarily the end of the world.
Turning to the area of nursing care, this facility received a grade of just D in this category. Unfortunately, this ended up being one of its better grades. Nursing ratings are primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's third best category was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this facility really didn't perform very well here either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. If you are looking for services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 96.06299 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
