Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it performed pretty well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing score is primarily associated with the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, this facility received an F for its long-term care score. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities provide. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.382355 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is a few points less than we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given a poor grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously somewhat alarming. In calculating these short-term care grades, we assess the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With a grade of this caliber for this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this nursing home was well below average in the two key staffing figures we looked at. The nursing home offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
