Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher grades in that area, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. While this facility had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received an impressive grade in our long-term care category. We gave this nursing home an above average grade of B in that category. When nursing homes receive this kind of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 99.23664 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients healthy. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.

Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a middle of the road score in the area of short-term care, where it received a grade of C. Short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to track down information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.
Switching gears to the last area, we gave this nursing home a D in nursing. This was the facility's weakest category grade. Unfortunately, this grade pulled down the facility's overall grade a bit. The nursing score weighs a handful of data points, but the most important one is the quantity of nurse hours per patient per week. This nursing home offered just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
