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 ratings are based on items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to resident safety. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing proved to be its second best category grade. In that area, we gave this facility an C. Our nursing score consists of quite a few components, but the primary one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. It performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Long-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this facility only earned a grade of D for its long-term care score, which is not one of our better scores. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in a few of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. After looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated 83.460365 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points lower than what we expected. To our surprise, this facility actually fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area was short-term care, which is the last area we analyzed. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a D. Short-term care grades are commonly used to gauge a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. To have high-end rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. With its abysmal rating in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. The final datapoint we considered in this area is the percentage of residents that were able to return home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.7 percent of its residents returning home. This was well below average.
