Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a horrible overall grade, we awarded it an A- for our inspections score. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively minor. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this nursing home a grade of just D for our short-term care score and that actually turned out to be its next most favorable category. Short-term care scores are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this category, we weren't stunned to find this nursing home was below average in several staffing areas we looked at. The nursing home supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of patients who returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.8 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Our next category we looked at is long-term care, in which this facility received an F. For patients in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.765434 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Moving on to our fourth area, this nursing home really did not perform very well here either. With an abysmal grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. We analyzed the skill-level of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in determining our grade in this category. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
