Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this nursing home overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is significantly more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. It is generally in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of severe deficiencies. 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. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care grade appears to be one of its higher features. The nursing home was awarded a grade of B- in this area. Long-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of care. This means a vast range of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine medical services. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second worse category was short-term care, where it earned a grade of just D in that category. This is a relatively poor grade. Short-term care ratings are crucial for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually requires additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. With its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients that eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
Switching gears to the fourth category, this facility really did not perform well here either. Due to a very poor grade of F in nursing, this is really as terrible as it gets. In determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the quantity of hours nurses are with patients as well as the skill levels of those 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. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
