Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home earned a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to point out its excellent health inspections in recent years. We gave them an A in this category. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies an imminent risk to resident safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor leaves us less concerned with this inspection report.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's better category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B. When facilities receive this type of grade in this category it is a good sign for patient care and suggests that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 95.9381 percent of its patients, which is higher than the average nursing home. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In computing our nursing scores, we look at both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Finally, while this nursing home got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its patients experiencing pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst area was short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. In this area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more meaningful for folks in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other variations of therapy. In this nursing home's case, it looks like it offered fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The final datapoint we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar metrics was damning for this nursing home's short-term care grade.
