Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall score was as bad as it gets, it actually performed well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this facility an D. We scrutinized the levels of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in determining our grade in this area. This place offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not a very good score. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated only 64.88764 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is short-term care. Sadly, it received an F for this category, which is a very poor grade. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. As you might expect, we discovered that this facility offers substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
