Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the area of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection grades are tied to items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category tend to have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This facility was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
The second highest area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the area of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. Our short-term care scores are thought to be more important for individuals in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We found that this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it supplied fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. It is still important to determine whether this is adversely impacting the quality of care. Lastly, we considered the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

This facility's next best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of C. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, nursing scores also consider quality-based measures, such as avoiding major falls. Despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place actually performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls could be avoided if a nursing home supplies enough nurses to assist its patients.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we graded was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this facility. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in our long-term care category. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care grades are an important measure. After looking at the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
