Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating these inspection scores. One critical factor is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being relatively minor. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the category of short-term care, we awarded this facility a grade of A- in that category. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most meaningful for folks requiring rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents were able to return home.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. We assessed the qualifications of nurses working for the nursing home, in addition to the number of hours those nurses spent with residents, in determining our score in this category. This nursing home averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day, which is not an impressive total. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it scored well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good measures 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 offered.
Long-term Care Quality
Moving on to the final area, this nursing home did not perform well. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in long-term care, this was this nursing home's worst area. When facilities receive this kind of grade in this category it is a bad sign for patient care and it may mean that the place is not as well-staffed. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this facility vaccinated 87.23405 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a few points below what we expected. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
