Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it an A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This facility was hit with 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's second best score is long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. Long-term care grades 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 assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to only 48.605576 percent of its patients, which is slightly concerning. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

This nursing home performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth category, this facility really did not fare well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in short-term care, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other types of therapists. This score is typically a meaningful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. With a score this poor in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this place was well below average in several staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. The last statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.2 percent of its residents returning home.
