Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall score. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with higher scores in this area generally have few of these severe deficiencies. While this place had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a middle of the pack score in the area of short-term care, with a grade of B-. In the area of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and various therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below the national average.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. In calculating our nursing ratings, we assess both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It scored well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed was long-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. We gave this facility a D in that area. Nursing homes that do not fare well in long-term care often don't provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in a few of the areas of routine personal care we looked at. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated 87.431694 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is quite a few points below average. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.
