Registered Staff Hours
While this place's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection scores are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to resident safety. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't fare terribly in the category of short-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a C in that area, which turned out to be among its more respectable scores. Short-term care ratings are critical for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. Finally, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which is not an impressive grade. For residents looking for a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is a very solid percentage. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
The next area we assessed is nursing. It received a lowly F in this area, which is a very poor grade. Nursing scores are tied to nurse staffing levels. This facility averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This number is quite a bit below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home performed 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.
