Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it an A- for our inspections score. This grade is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection grades weigh a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating and that actually turned out to be its second highest score. Nursing grades are primarily based on a facility's nurse staffing. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality
We awarded this facility just a D for our long-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 82.77512 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the next area, this nursing home didn't fare very well in this category either. Due to an abysmal grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care scores are arguably more critical for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its poor rating in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this place provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last item we assessed in this category is the number of patients who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home.
