Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it received a fairly respectable inspection report this year. As a result, it received a decent grade in that category with a score of B-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies end up being quite minor. While this place had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this facility received a reasonably solid long-term care score in our assessment. We gave it a B- in this area. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 95.4386 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a facility's nurse staffing. This nursing home averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores. This facility performed well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we scored was short-term care. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Our short-term care ratings are crucial for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
