Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a C. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. On top of looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 59.52381 percent of its residents. This is multiple points below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this facility excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest score is short-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. In our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we assess the facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
The next category we analyzed is nursing. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area, which is a rock bottom score. Our nursing rating is based on a host of data points. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. 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 looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
