Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we actually gave it a relatively strong grade in the category of inspections, where it earned a grade of B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. This place was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a grade of B-. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.6633 percent of its residents. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. In determining these short-term care scores, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to devise a measure for sizing up the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Given its abysmal rating in this category, we weren't shocked to learn that this place offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics sunk this nursing home's short-term care grade.
Moving on to our final area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D in nursing. This is the facility's weakest category grade. There are several data points within this grade. Many of these criteria are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This statistic is far below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
