Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility also excelled in the area of inspections, where it earned an A-. Few facilities performed better in this area. These inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that CMS didn't deem any of these deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a favorable score in short-term care. This facility received a B in this area, which is one of our higher scores. In determining our short-term care ratings, we look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to formulate a scale for comparing the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.

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. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was long-term care, which was this facility's weakest category. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is clearly a major disappointment. For patients seeking a permanent place to live rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.859215 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility had less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
