Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. Inspection grades weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had a generally favorable view of this nursing home's inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
The next most favorable area we gave this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. This place keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

As you might expect, we learned that this place provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
This facility's weakest area is nursing, which is the final area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area. In spite of some solid grades in other categories, this grade is still alarming so we wanted to make a note of it.

This particular nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This statistic is far below the national average.
