Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are quite insignificant. This place was assessed 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies an immediate risk to patient health or safety. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this facility a B+ in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more favorable grades. Our short-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

We were pleased to find that this nursing home vaccinates 100 percent of its residents for pneumonia. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Moving on to the fourth category, this nursing home was given a C for nursing, which is an acceptable grade. Nursing grades are based in large part on quantity of nursing care available. This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
