Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a relatively impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our more favorable grades in that area with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Our nursing rating assesses several datapoints, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest category was long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 99.047615 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable percentage. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was short-term care, which was this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. In our short-term care score, we strive to craft a fair gauge for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at a facility's level of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
