Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite insignificant. 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 nursing home still received a relatively positive report.
Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. There are several datapoints within this category. Most of these factors are tied to nurse staffing. 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 assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care score. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. After assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 92.02658 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which happens to be somewhat below what we expected but still a respectable percentage. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care, in which this nursing home received a bottom of the barrel grade in this category also. It received a lowly F for this category, which is definitely very concerning. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is generally a fair measure of a facility's rehabilitation services. Given its score in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care score.
