Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A- for our nursing rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Our nursing score considers many factors. The most important one is the quantity of hours nurses spent with residents. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality measures and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any nursing home the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can frequently be prevented by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a system of moving residents at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was awarded a favorable short-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ in this area, which is one of our better. Our short-term care grade is generally used to measure a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To offer highly rated rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not every facility employs these skilled professionals. However, according to the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.8 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Candidly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated just 87.864075 percent of its patients. Fortunately, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.04 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
In our last category of inspections, this facility received an F here. This score was very detrimental to this facility's overall grade. When a facility has this bad of an inspection rating, you should expect some severe deficiencies on its inspection report. Severe deficiencies indicate a risk to the well being of residents. This nursing home was hit with a category G through L deficiency, which rank among the more severe deficiencies. This generally indicates that the deficiencies uncovered by CMS had potential to cause actual harm to residents. Lastly, we need to point out that this facility was assessed large government fines recently amounting to over $100,000. This generally means that a nursing home's bad track record has been an issue for multiple years.
