Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely avoided the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a middle of the road score in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a C. In the area of short-term care, we strive to assess indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. In fact, it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. It is important to determine whether this also correlates to a lower quality of care. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next best area ended up being long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a C. For prospective patients looking for a permanent residence rather than skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination records. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is better than most nursing homes. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The final area we scored is nursing, is this nursing home's weakest category. We gave this nursing home a D in that area. The nursing score includes many data points, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. 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 looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
