Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received an impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest grades in that area with a grade of A-. Our inspection ratings are tied to several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This place was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was long-term care, but it nevertheless earned a grade of just D in that area. This is still a well below average score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 96.174866 percent of its patients, which is a very solid percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.

Turning to the area of short-term care, this facility received just a D in that category. In the category of short-term care, we strive to assess measures of a facility's rehabilitation.

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 measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
The next category we assessed is nursing. It received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. Our nursing rating is largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
