Registered Staff Hours
While we did not rate this place favorably overall, we want to point out its relatively solid health inspections in recent years. We gave it a B+ in this category, which is much better than its overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the category of long-term care. This proved to be its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Long-term care grades are often used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a rehabilitation facility. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 92.608696 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home's next best category is short-term care. However, with a D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. Our short-term care grade is generally employed to measure a facility's rehabilitation services To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. With a score in this range for this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this nursing home was below average in two of the key staffing areas we focus on. In fact, it supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The final metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care score.
Turning to our final area, this facility did not perform well in this area either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is really as bad as it gets. When determining our nursing grades, we look at both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
