Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that area with a B+. Our inspection grades are tied to items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This facility was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next best category was short-term care. As it turns out, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively badly. In calculating our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This rating is considered to be a solid assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average nursing home. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics doomed this facility's short-term care grade.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing rating weighs several factors. The most important one is the number of hours nurses spend with residents. With only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this category either. With an abysmal grade of F in long-term care, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Facilities that receive this kind of score in this category likely don't provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. In addition to looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home provided the vaccine to a relatively low 89.47369 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place actually fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
