Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this nursing home an A+ for our inspections rating. This grade is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This means that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an immediate risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed favorably in the category of long-term care, with a strong grade of A- in this area. When facilities receive a grade in this range in this category it generally means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to live on a permanent basis. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 95.54938 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing rating looks at the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. We look at both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the number of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home averaged just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This statistic is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our last category, this nursing home didn't fare well. With a bottom of the barrel grade of F in short-term care, this is this nursing home's weakest grade. Our short-term care scores are probably more meaningful for residents requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With its grade in this category, we were not surprised to find that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 2.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
