Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid places that have a long list of severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this nursing home only received a grade of D for its short-term care score, which was actually one of its higher category scores. Our short-term care grade is often used to grade a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly trained professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the area of long-term care, this nursing home was given just a D in this area. For patients in need of a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinated 94.09594 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The final category we looked at is nursing. This facility was given a poor grade of F in this category. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home offered only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is not a very impressive figure. In addition to its below average nursing hour totals, this place received suboptimal scores in some of the quality-based measures we looked at in calculating our nursing ratings. We found that more of this facility's residents sustained falls which led to serious injury. We believe that many falls could likely be prevented with better nursing care. This statistic contributed to this nursing home receiving a terrible nursing grade.
