Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection grades are based on pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these inspections. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to patient safety. This facility was hit with 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to create an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also stunned to discover that this nursing home earned a reasonably solid short-term care rating in our assessment. We gave it a grade of B- in that category. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. It is important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is actually below average.

Long-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed is long-term care, where this facility received a rock bottom grade here as well. Sadly, it received an F for this area, which is definitely a major concern. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is typically a bad sign for resident care and it may mean that the facility is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated only 75 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
