Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this facility's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it received one of our best scores in that category with an A. Our inspection ratings are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these inspections. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This facility was assessed 4 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 cause an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's second best category was short-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed relatively poorly. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This area is more often than not a fair assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't stunned to find that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected to find. Finally, we considered the number of residents who returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed was long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a D in that category. Facilities that do not fare well in this category typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we assessed. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 93.72442 percent of its patients. This is somewhat lower than we expected but still a respectable figure. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best score in this category.
