Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's nursing grade outpaced its overall score. In fact, we gave it a B+ for its nursing grade, which is one of our better scores. Our nursing grade is based on quite a few datapoints, many of which are tied to nursing hours. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a solid grade in the category of short-term care, where it received a grade of B-. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 4.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest category ended up being its long-term care grade, where it received a grade of C. Our long-term care ratings are pivotal for people requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.59155 percent of its patients. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Looking to our last category of inspections, we gave this nursing home a score of just D, which is a relatively poor grade. Our inspection score is based on the nursing home's government inspections. Since this information is collected by independent government inspectors, we place more weight on it in our overall grades. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. We recommend you pay close attention to the level of severity of those deficiencies. This particular facility was hit with 10 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of these deficiencies were in the categories that indicate they posed a risk to resident safety or health. Lastly, we also want to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received large government fines recently totaling more than $100,000. This often indicates that a facility's poor performance spanned multiple years.
