Registered Staff Hours
While we gave this facility a poor overall grade, we gave it a grade of B for our inspections category. This is due to the facility receiving a decent government inspection report this year. Our inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid nursing homes with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also wanted to note this nursing home's abysmal short-term care score where it was given a lowly F. In forming our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The goal is to devise a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different facilities. With a grade in this range in this category, we weren't shocked to discover this place was well below average in the two key staffing metrics we focus on. In fact, it provided substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. The last metric we considered in this area is the percentage of patients who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.1 percent of its residents returning home.

Long-term Care Quality
Another issue was the F this nursing home received in the area of long-term care. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. One of the factors we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours was vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 92.14876 percent of its residents. To our surprise, 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 was its best score in this category.
Moving on to our next category, this facility really did not perform well in this category either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is about as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing rating consists of several subcategories, most of which are associated with nursing hours. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
