Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall score was as bad as it gets, it fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Our inspection grades are tied to many datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also didn't grade out poorly in the area of short-term care. Indeed, we awarded it a C in that category, which ended up being another one of its more respectable scores. Our short-term care grades are vital for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The critical question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. The last item we considered in this category is the number of patients who returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses and the number of hours spent with residents. 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. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is long-term care. We gave it an abysmal F in this area, which is a rock bottom grade. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. Once we looked at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this facility vaccinated 99.570816 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
