Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned a fairly impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that area with a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a D for its long-term care score, which turns out to be one of its higher category scores. Nursing homes that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. Once we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated just 72.50755 percent of its residents against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is short-term care, in which this nursing home was given an abysmal grade here also. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is definitely a major disappointment. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze a facility's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This grade is typically a fair assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. Considering its score in this category, we were not stunned to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The last item we looked at in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
