Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this is a decent facility is that it received a very favorable inspection score. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. Inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better grades in this area usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
This nursing home's nursing grade appears to be one of its better features. The facility received a grade of B- in this category. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, although this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based measures. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this area.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next highest category was long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. Long-term care grades are generally used to measure a facility's performance as a traditional convalescent home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services provided by a skilled nursing facility. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were disappointed to learn that this facility vaccinated a relatively low 90.445854 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Short-term care grades are commonly employed to assess a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other highly trained professionals. With a grade of this caliber in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in many staffing figures we looked at. It supplied far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely was not a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
