Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are relatively insignificant. We weren't able to track down deficiency data for this facility. Without having all of the deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being a challenge to evaluate it in the inspections category.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category scores came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is an overall good place to reside on a permanent basis. After considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents healthy. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

This area is typically a useful assessment of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. Unfortunately, it does not appear that this nursing home submitted information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists.

At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
The last area we analyzed is nursing, which is this nursing home's worst category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Of course, this grade hurt the nursing home's overall profile a bit. Our nursing score includes many factors, many of which are associated with nursing hours. With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, this facility's nurse staffing levels were significantly below average.
