Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. While this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility an C. The nursing score features several datapoints. The most important factor is the quantity of hours nurses spend with patients. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable category was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this area. Our short-term care ratings are vital for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we considered the percentage of residents that ultimately returned home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is long-term care, where this nursing home received a rock bottom score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is obviously a major concern. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished looking at the amount of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 95.505615 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
