Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home a grade of A+ for its inspection grade. This score is far better than its overall score. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining these inspection ratings. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively minor. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not deem 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 lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was given a positive score in our long-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in that category. Long-term care ratings in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. One of the datapoints we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccine to 100 percent of its residents. Vaccination is a reliable method to avoid unnecessary deaths and hospitalizations for the aged 65 and up population. Finally, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Turning to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing rating. In fact, we gave this nursing home an impressive grade of D. In determining our nursing ratings, we weigh both nursing hours and the skill levels of the nurses. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at is short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst area. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this area, which is obviously very disappointing. Our short-term care ratings are based on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide scope of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its score in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
