Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this nursing home a good overall grade, we actually gave it a relatively strong grade in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of B. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's more favorable category grades came in the area of long-term care. This wound up being its second most respectable category. In that area, we gave this nursing home a B-. Long-term care grades are used to judge a nursing home's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing more on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. One of the factors we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.18033 percent of its residents. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development was the F this nursing home received in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care scores are presumably most critical for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With its score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
The last area we assessed was nursing. This nursing home received a poor grade of F in this area. The nursing rating includes several data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spend with patients. This place averaged only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
