Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received an A. Few facilities performed better in this category. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable category is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack score in this area. Our short-term care ratings are considered to be most important for individuals requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means not only nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

This nursing home provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This figure is far below average. Lastly, our nursing scores also factor in quality-based assessments, such as preventing major falls.

This nursing home's worst area was long-term care, which is the final category we assessed. Sadly, it received an abysmal F in this category. In spite of some decent grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless disappointing so we felt obligated to point it out. For prospective residents in need of a permanent place to live rather than skilled nursing, long-term care grades are very important.

This facility gave the vaccine to 98.28571 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
