Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. These inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility an C. Our nursing grade is mostly associated with a facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a much lower figure than we were hoping for. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared well in this area. This is generally an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of moving residents even once per day.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's third highest category was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat poorly. In crafting these short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our purpose is to devise a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various facilities. Given its grade in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we looked at is long-term care, which turned out to be a low point for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of just D for the area of long-term care. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the data points we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 100 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
