Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned an inspection grade which is stronger than its overall grade. Inspection ratings are tied to a nursing home's recent inspections. We awarded this facility a very solid grade of B+ in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had positive view of this facility's recent inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the category of short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a B. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. With our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a valuable gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last item we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the last area, this nursing home received an acceptable long-term care score of C. For prospective residents looking for a permanent residence as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We were a bit concerned this facility administered the vaccine to only 75 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
