Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest scores in that category with an A-. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this category. In a long-term care setting, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 98.42519 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second least favorable category was short-term care, where it received just a D in that category. This is a relatively poor score. Short-term care scores are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.7 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
The next category we analyzed is nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area, which is an abysmal grade. The nursing grade consists of many subcategories, however, the primary consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also didn't perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents experiencing pressure ulcers and major falls. This facility had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home.
