Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility performed well in the category of long-term care. As a result, we gave it a grade of A- for that area, which turns out to be one of our most impressive grades. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. One of the statistics we considered after nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 95.48611 percent of its residents. This is a reliable method to minimize negative health outcomes for the nursing home population.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. The nursing grade is based on numerous factors. The most important variable is the quantity of hours nurses spend with residents. This facility provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat concerning figure which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a reliable indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is short-term care. For that category, we awarded this nursing home a C. With our short-term care score, we endeavor to create a valuable measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like this facility provided information about its staffing of registered nurses or physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the number of patients that returned home from this facility. We found that 4.5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below the national average.
