Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. Although this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
This nursing home really excelled in the category of nursing, where it earned an C. Few places performed better in this area. Our nursing rating is largely tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed well in this subcategory. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a policy of turning patients more often.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the category of long-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber 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 considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 93.15069 percent of its patients. This is slightly below what we were hoping for but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care. This nursing home was given a very poor grade of F in that category. In calculating these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our objective is to create a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With a grade this poor in this category, we were not shocked to learn this nursing home was well below average in several staffing areas we focus on. It provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.5 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
