Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall score, we gave this facility a grade of A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. Arguably the most significant factor we look at in computing our inspection ratings is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care grade appears to be one of its best scores. The nursing home was given a C in this category. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 96.268654 percent of its patients. This place keeps its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

This nursing home's next best category was nursing. We awarded it a grade of C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road grade in this category. The nursing rating includes many datapoints. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this nursing home got dinged a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in a few of these quality measures. With less than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this metric. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a system of moving patients more frequently.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to our fourth category, we gave this facility a grade of D in our short-term care category. This was the nursing home's weakest category score. In the area of short-term care, we attempt to assess measures of a nursing home's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Considering its score in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home.
