Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was terrible, it actually fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home an F. Our nursing grade focuses on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with patients. This facility offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
Another issue was the F this facility received in the category of long-term care. For patients in need of a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 99.346405 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we looked at is short-term care. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is a rock bottom score. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for individuals in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its poor score in this area, we weren't shocked to discover this facility provides far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final item we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 3.3 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
