Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B. Inspection ratings are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you 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 necessarily the end of the world.
Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. Nursing grades are largely tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home just a D for our long-term care score. This is not a score to write home about. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 99.64476 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was short-term care, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score in this area as well. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. In computing our short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The objective is to create a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different facilities. Given its poor grade in this area, we were not surprised to find this place offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
