Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Our nursing rating includes quite a few components, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. It scored well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
This facility really didn't perform horribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category. Other categories turned out to be the source of its rock bottom overall grade. Inspection grades are tied to datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to patient safety. This nursing home was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to create an imminent danger to patient safety or health. We did not find anything on this place's inspection report to be too alarming.

Long-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to discover that this facility received a reasonably solid long-term care score this year. We awarded it a C in this category. For prospective patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. This facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to our final category, we gave this facility a D for short-term care. This is the nursing home's worst category score. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We analyze a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this facility provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average nursing home. The last statistic we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
