Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this facility incredibly poorly overall, it earned a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that area with a B. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some are quite minor. This particular nursing home received 4 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.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. In that category, we gave this nursing home an D. There are a number of subcategories within this category. Most of the factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of long-term care, this facility was awarded a grade of just D in that category. Nursing homes that receive this kind of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home gave the vaccine to a relatively low 80.74074 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is short-term care, ended up being this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a D in that category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final measure we considered in this category is the number of patients that were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
