Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a grade of B- for our nursing rating. In calculating our nursing ratings, we weigh both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is far below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility actually excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
This place actually performed well in the area of inspections as well. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is a respectable grade. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the 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 necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home wound up receiving a an abysmal score in our short-term care category. It received an F in this area. Short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a broad scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. Finally, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.7 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we scored is long-term care, where this facility received a poor score here also. It received an abysmal F in this area, which is obviously a major concern. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other facilities provide. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 89.84881 percent of its residents. This is several points lower than what we were hoping for. To our surprise, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
