Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually received a very impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our highest scores in that category with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility wound up receiving a a terrible score in our short-term care category. It received an F in this category. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most critical for folks requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Considering its abysmal rating in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home offers substantially fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 0 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.

Long-term Care Quality
Our third area we looked at was long-term care, where this facility received an F. Nursing homes that receive this type of score in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent around the clock care that some other facilities offer. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this facility vaccinated just 58.870968 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
Turning to the next category, this facility really did not perform very well here either. Due to a bottom of the barrel grade of F in nursing, this is just about as terrible as it gets. The nursing rating assesses several factors, but the main consideration is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. With only 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were far below the national average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
