Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent grade in the area of inspections, where it received an A. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid score in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. In our long-term care assessment, we weigh the quantity of care offered by a nursing home, along with a series of qualitative datapoints. After assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 88.395905 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is significantly below average. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a rock-bottom F in the category of short-term care. Short-term care grades are often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. As you might expect, we learned that this nursing home offers significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical nursing home. The final item we looked at in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below the national average.
The next area we looked at is nursing, where this facility was given a bottom of the barrel grade in this category also. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this category, which is definitely a major concern. Our nursing grade assesses quite a few data points, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
