Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this place a good overall grade, we actually gave it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of B. Arguably the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had too many severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care score ended up being one of its better scores. The facility was given a grade of C in this category. Our short-term care grade is typically used to judge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must feature better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. The final item we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

We gave this facility just a D for our long-term care grade. This is not a very good score. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinated 99.72452 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Turning to our last area, we gave this facility a D for nursing. This is the facility's weakest category grade. There are a variety of criteria included in this grade. Many of the subcategories relate to nurse staffing. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
