Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it received an A-. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest area ended up being its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home gave the vaccine to only 73.53846 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We also wanted to draw your attention to this facility's poor nursing grade where it received an F. Our nursing rating analyzes the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with patients. This nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these statistics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated was short-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. Our short-term care grades are critical for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
