Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it a B+ for our inspections rating. This score is much more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G through L. This means 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 the end of the world.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing score looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We factor in both the levels of training of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. This facility provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second worse category was long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a well below average grade. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Fortunately, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 99.318184 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last area, this nursing home did not fare well in this area either. Due to a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech 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. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
