Registered Staff Hours
Although we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it earned a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our better scores in that category with a B+. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. 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
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care score and that actually turned out to be its second most respectable category. For prospective residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is a very solid percentage. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, this nursing home was awarded just a D in that area. In forming our short-term care grades, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a tool for comparing the rehabilitation services of various facilities. As you might expect, we found that this place offers significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical facility. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
Switching gears to the next area, this nursing home didn't perform very well in this area either. With a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing score looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the number of hours spent with patients. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing grades. This place performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
