Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a C for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Our inspection scores weigh a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were in categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received some government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's next most respectable score was long-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. If you are seeking anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. Once we assessed the amount of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are with residents as well as the level of skill of those nurses. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This figure is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, this nursing home really didn't fare well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a meaningful gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
