Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this facility received a solid short-term care grade in our assessment. We awarded it a C in that area. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is long-term care. This facility was given a rock bottom grade of F in that area. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care scores. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 96.46365 percent of its residents, which is an above average total. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
