Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
This facility earned an impressive short-term care grade this year. We awarded it a B in this category. Our short-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide range of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. We were not able to find registered nurse or physical therapy staffing data for this facility. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
We actually gave this facility a very solid grade in the area of inspections as well. We awarded it a B- in this category. This is better than many facilities in this category. These inspection grades weigh several factors, 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. This nursing home was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category is long-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the statistics we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 97.31405 percent of its patients. This place also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Switching gears to the fourth area, this nursing home did not perform very well here either. Due to a rock bottom grade of F in nursing, this is really as as uninspiring as it gets. Our nursing score features several subcategories. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be indicators of the quality of nursing care.
