Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that category with a B. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with a bunch of deficiencies flagged. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a a terrible grade in our long-term care area. It was given a lowly F in this area. Long-term care scores in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 93.85246 percent of its residents. This is a bit below what we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. Our short-term care scores are crucial for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
The final area we rated is nursing. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this area. Nursing grades are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Unfortunately, this facility also had terrible scores in some of the quality-based measures to go along with its weak nursing hours. We looked at the percent of residents suffering pressure ulcers and we were quite disappointed. This facility was at roughly 150 percent of the national average in this statistic. This is likely a bad sign when you consider that many bed sores are preventable with better nursing care. This metric helped pull down this facility's nursing rating quite a bit.
