Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. Fortunately, although this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, CMS flagged this nursing home for possible abuse or neglect. This is not what you want to see. We advise you to direct your search elsewhere.
Remarkably, we awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our nursing rating, which isn't a bad grade. Nursing scores are largely based on a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't rate poorly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we gave it a B- for that area, which turned out to be another one of its better scores. Short-term care grades are often employed to measure a facility's performance with rehabilitation In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is long-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in long-term care likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other nursing homes provide. After looking at the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 91.96429 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is a few points lower than we anticipated but still a decent percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
