Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A- for that area, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection ratings are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. This facility received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second highest category was short-term care, but it still received a grade of just D in that area. This turns out to be a relatively poor score. In forming these short-term care scores, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to formulate a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. With a score this poor for this category, we weren't stunned to learn this nursing home was well below average in multiple staffing figures we assess. The nursing home provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, this nursing home received a grade of just D in this category. Facilities that receive this type of score in long-term care likely don't provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities offer. After considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated 80.82789 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a bit below what we expected. Surprisingly, this place actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
The last area we looked at was nursing, in which this nursing home received a very poor grade in this category also. It received an F in this category, which is definitely somewhat alarming. Our nursing grade focuses on the facility's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of skill of the nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. On top of its below average nursing hours, this facility earned poor marks in many of the quality-based measures we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We found that more of this facility's residents sustained falls leading to major injury.
