Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that category with a grade of B+. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid places that had too many severe deficiencies. Although this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home's second highest category was long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared relatively badly. For prospective patients seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility administered the vaccine to 94.7644 percent of its patients, which is a very solid statistic. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a score of this caliber for this category, we were not shocked to learn this place was below average in the two key staffing figures we looked at. The facility supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The final item we considered in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.3 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
The last category we analyzed was nursing. This nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area. Our nursing score focuses on the facility's level of nurse staffing. We consider both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
