Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this place a terrible overall grade, we gave it a grade of B for our inspections rating. This was the result of the facility receiving a quality inspection report this year. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for its short-term care score, which isn't too bad of a score. With our short-term care assessment, we seek to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this category is the number of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its nursing grade. Our nursing category is based on a handful of subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the last category, this nursing home did not fare well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as terrible as it gets. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to just 85.11905 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
