Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with an A. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. This nursing home was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category ended up being long-term care. In that area, we gave this facility a B-. With our long-term care rating, we look at the amount of services provided by a facility, as well as some qualitative metrics. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we next considered the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 94.88055 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. We weighed the levels of nurses working for the facility, as well as the quantity of hours those nurses spent with residents, in calculating our rating in this area. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our final category, this nursing home really didn't perform well. With a very poor grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's worst category grade. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be more important for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Based on its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was what we expected to find. The last metric we looked at in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care score.
