Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong long-term care grade. Indeed, we gave them a B in this area, which happens to be one of our better. When facilities receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is usually a good sign for resident care and suggests that the place is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 97.95918 percent of its residents. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Lastly, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. There are many subcategories within this category. Many of the factors reflect the quantity and quality of nurse staffing. This facility offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these datapoints to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded was short-term care, which was this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this facility a grade of D in this area. Sadly, this category hurt the facility's overall grade to a certain degree. Short-term care ratings are vital for residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility offers less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.6 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
