Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home's overall grade, it actually received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best grades in that category with a grade of A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this facility so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing score. Nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an C. Nursing ratings are based largely on quantity of nursing care available. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care grade. This is not a score to write home about. In the area of short-term care, we seek to evaluate measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other 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 looked at the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, this nursing home really didn't perform well in this category either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in long-term care, this is about as bad as it gets. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. We were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 84.78261 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit below the national average. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This was its best feature in this category.
