Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better grades in that category, with an A. This is a notably better score than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies an immediate threat to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next best area is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road grade in this area. Short-term care grades are typically employed to score a facility's rehabilitation services. In order to offer highly rated rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. The question is whether this adversely impacted quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we weigh the amount of time nurses commit to residents as well as the level of licensure of those nurses. This nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. It performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the number of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth area, we gave this facility a D in our long-term care category. This was the nursing home's weakest category grade. Nursing homes that don't fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nursing hours was vaccines. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to just 76.08695 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had fewer hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. This is its best score in this category.
