Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection grades account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many deficiencies flagged. This nursing home was assessed 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home ended up receiving a a terrible score in our short-term care category. It received an F in this area. Our short-term care grades are arguably most critical for residents needing rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually mandates additional highly-skilled nursing services. This means not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. With a grade this poor for this area, we were not shocked to learn this place was well below average in many staffing figures we assess. In fact, it provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The final metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed is long-term care. This nursing home's was given a rock-bottom long-term care grade where it was given a lowly F. When nursing homes receive a score in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home did not perform well in our measures relating to patient care. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 92.72031 percent of its residents. This is slightly less than we expected but still a decent percentage. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home really didn't fare very well here either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is about as bad as it gets. In determining our nursing grades, we analyze both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
