Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are relatively minor. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. Nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of C. Our nursing grade is based on a host of factors. The most heavily weighted variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality measures. Although this place got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric. This is typically an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving a patient even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality
Another unfortunate development was the F this facility was given in the category of short-term care. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a score of this caliber in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in several staffing metrics we focus on. The nursing home provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed is long-term care. This facility received a poor grade of F in this area. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 83.13725 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
