Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We believe that one of the most important factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of the deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
This facility's second best category was nursing, but even there it received a grade of just D. This is still a well below average grade. Our nursing rating weighs a host of subcategories. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development was the F this nursing home was given in the area of long-term care. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 84.555984 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This was its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care, where this facility received an abysmal score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously very concerning. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most critical for patients needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not just nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Given its weak score in this category, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home provided significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
