Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall score, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is due to the facility receiving a quality government inspection report this year. 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. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively positive inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Incredibly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our short-term care score, which really isn't a bad grade. In determining these short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility received an F for its long-term care grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the nursing home did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 91.75258 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
The final area we rated was nursing. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in that area. Nursing ratings are largely associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
