Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in nursing. We awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Nursing scores are based largely on levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning patients at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care score is one of its better grades. The nursing home was awarded a B- in this category. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 4.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. This figure was below the national average.

Severe deficiencies indicate a threat to the well being of residents. This place had 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were in any of the categories labeled J through L. This means the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies to place patient health or safety in imminent harm or jeopardy. Unfortunately, we also need to draw your attention to the fact that this facility received significant government fines in recent years.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was long-term care, which ended up being this facility's least impressive area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 96.94656 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
