Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. These inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also would like to point out that this facility was given an F for its short-term care grade. In determining our short-term care scores, we assess a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. This category is generally a meaningful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Considering its weak rating in this area, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. The final datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community.

To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
