Registered Staff Hours
We would like to point out that this facility's inspection grade exceeded its overall grade. This facility earned a B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a positive long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it a B+ in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that receive this type of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent around the clock care to ensure residents are well cared for. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is very impressive. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous illness for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't roll the dice on this issue. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to the next area, we gave this nursing home a D for the area of short-term care. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. In determining our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the facility's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other types of therapists. This area is often a solid measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. Considering its grade in this category, we weren't stunned to learn that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the figures we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
