Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received an excellent inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these can be relatively minor. It does not appear that we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. We would like to have more data for this facility. Without having deficiency data, it is difficult to grade it in terms of this category.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest area turned out to be its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. The nursing score features several factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is far below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was short-term care. This facility received an abysmal grade of F in this category. Short-term care grades are important for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.5 percent of its residents returning home.
