Registered Staff Hours
While we graded this nursing home incredibly poorly overall, it actually earned an impressive government inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our highest grades in that area with an A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report, which is still very impressive. At the end of the day, this was a generally favorable inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which ended up being one of its more favorable category scores. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to judge a facility's performance with rehabilitation. To have good rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature better levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. With its abysmal score in this area, we weren't stunned to learn that this place offers significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 6.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home ended up receiving a a terrible score in our long-term care area. It received a lowly F in this category. Facilities that don't fare well in long-term care typically are not as well-staffed and are lagging in a few of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination data. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated only 77.4359 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
Switching gears to the next category, this facility really didn't fare very well in this area either. With a poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing rating includes quite a few data points, but the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. With just 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident each day, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
