Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher grades in that area, with an A+. This is a notably better score 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 computing these inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that none of the deficiencies were severe made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent score in the area of short-term care, with a B-. In computing our short-term care scores, we size up the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. This grade is typically a meaningful assessment of the facility's rehabilitation. We weren't able to locate registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this place. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's patients returned home. Unfortunately, this was below average.

The next highest grade we gave this nursing home in any area came in the category of nursing, where we gave it a grade of C. Our nursing grade is primarily based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, although this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared very well in this metric.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, which is this facility's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that area. Naturally, this score pulled down the nursing home's overall profile to some degree. For residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care grades are an important measure. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
