Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a relatively impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Our inspection grades weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating and that actually turned out to be its second highest score. The nursing score includes a handful of components, however, the main consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care score, which is not an impressive grade. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccines. We were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to a relatively low 83.561646 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we assessed is short-term care. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in that category. In computing these short-term care ratings, we look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With a grade this poor for this area, we were not shocked to discover this nursing home was well below average in two of the key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
