Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it received an elite inspection score. Its inspection score was far superior to its overall score. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. These inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's better category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of B. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse score is long-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that area. This is a well below average grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this facility administered the vaccine to a relatively low 88.05395 percent of its residents, which is slightly concerning. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
The next category we rated is nursing. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is a bottom of the barrel grade. This is certainly a significant disappointment. We scrutinized the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. To go along with its subpar totals in the area of nursing hours per resident, this facility also did not perform as well in the quality-based measures we looked at in determining our nursing grades. We looked at the percentage of residents sustaining pressure ulcers and major falls. This nursing home had more falls and pressure ulcers than the average nursing home. This may be a bad sign when you consider that many falls and bed sores are believed to be preventable with better nursing care. These metrics hurt this nursing home's nursing rating significantly.
