Registered Staff Hours
While this facility'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 B- for that category, which is one of our better scores. These inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this nursing home received a somewhat respectable short-term care rating in our assessment. We awarded it a B- in that category. In determining our short-term care ratings, we assess the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. This score is more often than not a solid assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

The final category we graded was long-term care. This facility received a bottom of the barrel grade of F in this area.

We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 95.74074 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital.
