Registered Staff Hours
Although we gave this facility a terrible overall grade, we awarded it a B- for our inspections rating. In fact, the facility received very impressive inspection report this year. Inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies.

Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
We were also pleasantly surprised to learn that this nursing home earned a reasonably solid short-term care grade in our assessment. We gave it a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care scores are based in part on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the measures we assessed. The real question is whether this also affected quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.

This nursing home also didn't perform terribly in the area of nursing. In fact, we awarded it a grade of C for that category, which is another one its better scores. Our nursing grade weighs quite a few factors, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, nursing grades also consider quality-based measures, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Some falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last category, this nursing home was awarded a grade of C for long-term care, which is a decent grade. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 88.793106 percent of its residents. This is multiple points lower than what we expected. Nevertheless, this nursing home excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
