Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall grade was terrible, it fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection ratings are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to note that this facility received an F for its short-term care grade. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. The final statistic we considered 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 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.

The last category we looked at is long-term care. This facility received a very poor grade of F in that area. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we assessed. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 93.68932 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be a few points less than we expected but still a respectable percentage. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
