Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall score was terrible, it fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a B for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. While this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Tragically, we gave this facility an F for its long-term care grade. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccines. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccination to 99.64789 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Another issue is the F this facility received in the area of short-term care. In computing our short-term care ratings, we analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Based on its poor grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.8 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
The final category we graded was nursing, where this nursing home was given a bottom of the barrel score here also. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously somewhat alarming. When determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This particular nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
