Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is generally best to avoid places that had too many severe deficiencies. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an imminent threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was awarded its second best category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of C in this category, which is an acceptable score. Our long-term care ratings are more critical for residents needing more conventional services related to activities of daily living. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is an above average total. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Our next area we graded was short-term care, where this nursing home received an F. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be most meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average nursing home. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.3 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
The final category we analyzed was nursing. This nursing home received a very poor grade of F in that area. There are numerous data points included in this area. Most of the factors are tied to the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This number is well below the national average. In addition to its subpar nursing hours, this nursing home received suboptimal marks in many of the quality-based metrics we looked at in computing our nursing grades. We found that more of this facility's patients sustained falls which led to major injury. We would argue that many falls could be prevented with better nursing care. This metric contributed to this place receiving a terrible nursing grade.
