Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received an impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best grades in that category with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection grades. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. In spite of this deficiency, this place still received a relatively positive report.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. This proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this nursing home an D. Our nursing rating includes several datapoints, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Short-term Care Quality
Another concern was the F this facility was given in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more important for people requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With its poor score in this category, we were not surprised to learn this nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, in which this facility received a bottom of the barrel score in this category also. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is definitely very concerning. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at long-term care scores. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.85864 percent of its patients, which is an above average figure. Surprisingly, this nursing home also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
