Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Long-term Care Quality
Among this nursing home's litany of terrible grades was its F in the area of long-term care. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means the facility didn't perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 64.87696 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.

Short-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed is short-term care. This nursing home's was given an unfortunate short-term care score where it received an F. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Not surprisingly, we discovered that this nursing home provides significantly less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. The last measure we looked at in this area is the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
The final area we rated was nursing, in which this nursing home was given a very poor score in this area as well. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. When calculating a nursing home's nursing grade, we weigh the quantity of hours nurses commit to residents and the levels of training of those nurses. With a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
