Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Inspection scores are based on several items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid nursing homes that have severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home received 2 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.
Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's second most favorable score is long-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed relatively badly. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination records. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 94.73684 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Short-term Care Quality
Another concern is the F this nursing home received in the category of short-term care. Our short-term care ratings are critical for prospective residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires additional skilled nursing. This means a broad spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Given its grade in this category, we weren't surprised to discover that this place was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we looked at. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
The final area we assessed is nursing, where this facility received a poor grade in this area also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major concern. In computing a facility's nursing grade, we look at the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the levels of training of the nurses. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
