Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable facility overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A+. Few facilities performed better in this area. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection scores. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite insignificant. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second highest area ended up being long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. For residents seeking a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the statistics we considered after nurse's aid hours was vaccines. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.67257 percent of its residents. Lastly, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area is short-term care. We awarded it a C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average grade in this category. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. We found that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we looked at. It provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the percentage of residents that returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we graded is nursing, which proved to be this facility's weakest category. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. In computing a nursing home's nursing rating, we consider the amount of time nurses spend with patients as well as the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is not a very impressive figure. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
