Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this place overall, we awarded it a B for our inspections category. This grade is far more impressive than the place's overall score. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that had too many deficiencies. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a middle of the road grade in the category of long-term care, with a grade of C. Our long-term care grades are more meaningful for people needing more traditional assistance related to activities of daily living. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 99.30796 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third best category is short-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this area. In forming these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The goal is to create a scale for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on the quality of care. The final measure we considered in this area is the number of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
The last category we assessed was nursing. This nursing home received an abysmal grade of F in that category. Nursing grades are tied to levels of nurse staffing. This facility offered a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
