Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was as bad as it gets, it actually didn't perform terribly in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a C for that category, which is one of our better scores. We believe that one of the most critical factors in assessing an inspection report is deficiencies. In this regard, we especially look at the severity of those deficiencies. This facility had 6 deficiencies on its government inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled G through L. This tells you that inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to present an imminent danger to patient health or safety. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing grade. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of D. We assessed the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this area. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home just a D for our long-term care grade. This is not a very good score. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means the nursing home didn't perform well in our measures relating to patient care. After looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were concerned by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated just 90.30928 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our next category, we gave this facility a grade of D in short-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Short-term care grades are often employed to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to provide highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have better levels of highly skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
