Registered Staff Hours
While we were fairly low on this facility overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is arguably 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 and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still received a relatively favorable report.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack grade in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. In determining our long-term care ratings, we scrutinize the assistance with daily living received by the facility's residents. One of the criteria we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to just 85.02538 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We also wanted to point out that this nursing home received an F for its nursing grade. There are a number of subcategories included in this grade. Many of the subcategories reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed was short-term care. This nursing home was given an abysmal grade of F in this area. Our short-term care ratings are vital for individuals needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
