Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this area typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This nursing home was hit with 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
The next most favorable category we gave this nursing home in any area came in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. In a long-term care setting, the nursing home's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination statistics. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 80.41237 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Nevertheless, this nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. Nursing scores are heavily correlated with quality and quantity of nursing care. This particular place offered a meager 0.2 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This statistic is quite a bit below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the final area we scored. Unfortunately, we gave it an abysmal F in this area. In spite of a few respectable scores in other categories, this grade is still of a concern so we felt obligated to make a note of it. Our short-term care scores are critical for individuals requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Given its score in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this place was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Frankly, this was what we expected here. The last metric we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics sunk this facility's short-term care grade.
