Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
This facility really excelled in our nursing category, where it received an D. Our nursing score is largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Another concern was the F this nursing home was given in the category of long-term care. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are a key measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored was short-term care. This nursing home was given a poor grade of F in that category. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and various therapists. As you might expect, we learned that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
