Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall score was terrible, it actually fared pretty well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only received a D for its short-term care rating, which ended up being one of its better category grades. Our short-term care grades are vital for patients seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.4 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was long-term care. This nursing home's was given a low-end long-term care score where it was given an F. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 94.578316 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Turning to the next area, this nursing home really didn't fare very well here either. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing grade analyzes a handful of factors, however, the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
