Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a very impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that area with a B+. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only received a grade of D for its long-term care grade, which turns out to be one of its better category grades. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average total. 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 less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second least favorable score is short-term care, where it received just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor grade. In determining these short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. The purpose is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a score of this caliber in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this facility was below average in multiple staffing figures we focus on. The nursing home offered significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The last category we rated was nursing. This facility received a very poor grade of F in this category. Nursing scores are mostly tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these data points to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
