Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this turned out to be a decent nursing home is that it received an excellent inspection score. In fact, its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave this facility an A. Inspection grades account for a host of factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we rely on is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with higher grades in this category generally have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
This nursing home received high grades in our nursing category as well. In fact, it received one of our highest scores in that category with a score of C. Our nursing grade is largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared with most other nursing homes. Finally, while this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents experiencing pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this subcategory.

Our short-term care scores are important for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a broad spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We were surprised to find that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final item we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

The final category we analyzed was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is not a bad grade in this category. Our long-term care grades are based on a facility's volume of nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. After we finished assessing the amount of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to find that this facility vaccinates 93.98281 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital.
