Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially focus on the severity of the deficiencies. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to find that this nursing home earned a somewhat respectable long-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in this area. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home provided the vaccine to only 76.642334 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We were also surprised to learn that this nursing home earned a solid short-term care grade this year. We awarded it a C in that area. Our short-term care grades are considered to be more important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires additional skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. The facility supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.
The last area we analyzed was nursing, ended up being this facility's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Our nursing rating features numerous subcategories. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this place's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
