Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this place incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned a relatively impressive inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our better grades in that area with a B+. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid facilities that have too many deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even with this deficiency, this nursing home still received a relatively favorable inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Surprisingly, we gave this nursing home a grade of C for our short-term care grade, which is not too bad of a score. In the area of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. We were surprised to find that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. The facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The third area we graded was long-term care. This nursing home's received an abysmal long-term care score where it was given a lowly F. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. As it turns out, this facility provided the vaccine to a relatively low 76.88442 percent of its residents, which is several points lower than we expected. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Moving on to the final category, this facility really did not perform very well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. The nursing grade consists of many data points, however, the most important consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home provides 0.2 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 computing our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these statistics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
