Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We would argue that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. Although this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a B- for our long-term care rating, which isn't too bad of a score. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. We were concerned by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 71.82741 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Fortunately, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing score is mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we looked at is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a very poor grade in this category as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. In crafting our short-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
