Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that area, with an A. This is a much better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection scores are based on several items located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that score well in this category typically have 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. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a solid grade in the category of long-term care, where it received a B-. Long-term care grades are based on the facility's volume of nursing care. This means a vast spectrum of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients, which is an above average datapoint. This place also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a score of D. In calculating a facility's nursing score, we weigh the number of hours nurses are seeing residents as well as the level of skill of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This facility fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we analyzed is short-term care, ended up being this facility's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in this area. In calculating these short-term care scores, we quantify the facility's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our goal is to formulate a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. With a score this poor in this area, we weren't shocked to learn that this place was well below average in multiple staffing figures we looked at. It offered substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents who eventually returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
