Registered Staff Hours
Although we were not high on this nursing home's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we consider in determining our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of deficiencies. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
One of this nursing home's better category grades was in the area of short-term care. This turned out to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In computing our short-term care grades, we look at a nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This category is frequently a useful assessment of the facility's ability to rehabilitate patients. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this area is the number of residents that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.7 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Another concern was the F this nursing home was given in the category of long-term care. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.82609 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, some of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Switching gears to our fourth category, this nursing home really did not fare well here either. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is just about as bad as it gets. Our nursing grade includes several data points. The most heavily weighted factor is the amount of time nurses spent with residents. This nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
