Registered Staff Hours
This facility's best category grade came in the area of health inspections. In that area, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this area. Inspection scores account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. While this facility had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's more impressive category grades came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outperformed most facilities in this category. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a life or death health condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility doesn't leave this to chance. 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 only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing category consists of many subcategories, many of which are associated with nursing hours. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a somewhat concerning figure as it is well below average. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this place got docked a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this area. This is typically a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can many times be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a patient at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a C. Our short-term care grades are presumably more critical for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
