Registered Staff Hours
In addition to receiving a great overall grade, this facility also received first-rate inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our best grades in that area, with an A. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this nursing home had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a score of A- for our short-term care grade. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. The last statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of B-. This wasn't quite on par with some of its other category grades mentioned above. Our nursing score focuses on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We consider both the levels of skill of those nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure as it is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it scored well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last area we scored is long-term care. We gave this facility a grade of D in our long-term care category, rendering this the nursing home's least impressive area. Facilities that do not fare well in long-term care typically aren't as well-staffed and are lagging in some of the areas of routine personal care we assessed. After considering the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. Frankly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 88.495575 percent of its patients against pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best score in this category.
