Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections category. This grade is much better than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a list of deficiencies flagged. This particular nursing home received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our nursing rating and that actually turned out to be its second highest score. Nursing grades are mostly associated with the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only received a D for its long-term care grade, which is not a score to write home about. Nursing homes that don't score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to only 50.94664 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed is short-term care, was this nursing home's weakest category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this category. With our short-term care grade, we endeavor to craft a fair barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we look at the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Based on its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
