Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we gave it a B for our inspections category. This is due to the facility receiving a decent inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This facility received 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also wanted to draw your attention to this nursing home's abysmal long-term care score where it received an F. When facilities receive this type of score in long-term care it is often a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 79.78723 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.

This facility ended up receiving rock bottom score in our nursing category. It received an F in this category. In computing a nursing home's nursing score, we consider the number of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded was short-term care. We gave it an F for this category, which is an abysmal score. Short-term care grades are typically employed to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
