Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't rate too badly in the category of short-term care. In fact, we gave it a grade of B- for that category, which is another one of its more respectable grades. In calculating our short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is still important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing grades are largely associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is long-term care. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in that area. When facilities receive a score in this range in long-term care it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 73.91304 percent of its patients against 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 nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best feature in this category.
