Registered Staff Hours
One of the reasons this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received a favorable inspection grade. In that area, we awarded this facility a B+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One critical factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively insignificant. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
One of the other reasons we graded this facility so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing score. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B. Nursing scores are largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can typically be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this facility a B in our short-term care category. This is one of our higher grades. Short-term care grades are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F in this category. Despite several respectable grades in other categories, this grade is still alarming so we would like to to draw your attention to it. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care may not provide the kind of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes offer. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 92.10526 percent of its residents. This is a few points less than we were hoping for but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
