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. Our inspection grades are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important thing to look for on these reports. Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Among this facility's host of rock-bottom grades was its F in the area of short-term care. Our short-term care grade is often employed to assess a nursing home's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly scored rehabilitation services, facilities generally must offer higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other types of therapists. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5 percent of its residents returning home.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the final area, this facility did not perform well here either. Due to a poor grade of F in long-term care, this is really as bad as it gets. Facilities that don't score well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be struggling in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated just 6.802722 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
