Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
This facility's second best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. Our nursing score is largely based on a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is every bit as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable area is long-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a B-. In determining our long-term care scores, we size up the personal care offered to a facility's residents. After we finished looking at the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 99.64413 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we analyzed was short-term care. We awarded this facility a grade of C in this area. Our short-term care ratings are likely more important for patients in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who returned home from this facility. We found that 4.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
