Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this place also excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few nursing homes performed better in this area. Our inspection grades are based on many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this area tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. We weren't able to locate information on deficiency's for this nursing home. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of long-term care, we gave this facility a score of A- in that area. Facilities that receive this type of grade in this category tend to provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are well cared for. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 99.65636 percent of its patients, which is far higher than the average nursing home. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. There are a host of criteria included in this area. Most of the criteria are tied to staffing levels. With only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this facility's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This place performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the next category, we gave this facility a D in short-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category score. Naturally, this score hurt the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. Our short-term care grades are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. In this facility's case, we found that it offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than a typical facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
