Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection grades are tied to several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.

This facility wound up receiving a rock-bottom grade in our long-term care category. It received an F in this area. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 91.56627 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is somewhat below what we were hoping for but still a decent figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we rated was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is a rock bottom grade. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, ranging 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 surprised to find this facility was well below average in two of the key staffing areas we assess. The nursing home offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
