Registered Staff Hours
While this facility'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. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. Unfortunately, it does not appear that we have deficiency counts for this nursing home. Lastly, this facility was flagged by CMS for possible abuse or neglect. We prefer to avoid facilities with this designation. Please do your best to find an alternative nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also didn't grade out too badly in the category of long-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a B- in that category, which is another one of its more respectable scores. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care offered by a facility, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. One of the factors we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. This place was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Remarkably, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for its short-term care grade, which isn't a bad grade. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more meaningful for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last measure we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The final area we analyzed is nursing. We gave it a lowly F in this category, which is a poor score. Our nursing rating consists of quite a few subcategories, many of which are based on nursing hours. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
