Registered Staff Hours
On top of having a decent overall score, we also would like to point out that this place received favorable government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in this area, with a B+. This is a notably better score than the nursing home's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining these inspection scores. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. While this place had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable category is its long-term care grade, where it was given a grade of B-. Long-term care scores are essential for prospective residents seeking non-healthcare services such as personal care.

This nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is higher than the majority of nursing homes. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital.

Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a respectable score in the area of short-term care, with a C. Our short-term care scores are likely most critical for people needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means not merely nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The final datapoint we considered in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
The last category we rated was nursing, which was a low point for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D in our nursing category. We weighed the levels of nurses employed by the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This place averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
