Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this nursing home a poor overall grade, we gave it a B for our inspections rating. This is the result of the nursing home receiving a decent inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This nursing home was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not 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. Our nursing rating analyzes many datapoints, but the primary consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is significantly below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home received a grade of just D in that category. Short-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this place was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a grade of just D. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our measures relating to resident care. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. We were a bit worried that this nursing home administered the vaccine to just 78.211006 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
