Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. While this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's second most respectable category was short-term care. Nevertheless, with a D in this area, it still performed somewhat badly. Our short-term care scores are considered to be most important for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients that returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care score. This is not a very good score. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 48.571426 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This is its best score in this category.
Turning to the last category, we gave this nursing home a D for nursing. This is the nursing home's least impressive category rating. When computing a facility's nursing score, we assess the number of hours nurses are with residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This place averaged only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades.
