Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall grade. Our inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have few severe deficiencies. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility was given its second best category grade in the category of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is a decent grade. In forming these long-term care ratings, we quantify the nursing home's ability to maintain its permanent residents' health and quality of life. One of the factors we considered on top of nurse's aid hours was vaccinations. Frankly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccine to just 82.40469 percent of its patients. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our nursing rating looks at the facility's level of nurse staffing. We weigh both the levels of licensure of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with residents. This particular nursing home provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below average. Finally, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is generally an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was short-term care, which proved to be this facility's weakest area. We awarded this nursing home a D in that category. Short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. Considering its grade in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the measures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who returned home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
