Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not bad, it really fared well in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A- for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Arguably the most important factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
We also gave this nursing home a favorable grade in short-term care. This facility earned a grade of B in this category, which turns out to be one of our more impressive scores. Our short-term care scores are meaningful for people looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more skilled nursing. This includes a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home employs registered nurses. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. When calculating our nursing ratings, we analyze both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of the nurses. This place provides only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below average. Finally, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it fared well in this subcategory. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be prevented by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of moving a patient at least once a day.
Long-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our fourth category, this facility did not perform well. Due to a very poor grade of F in long-term care, this is this facility's worst category grade. Facilities that receive this type of grade in long-term care may not provide the type of consistent 24/7 care that some other nursing homes provide. Once we assessed the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. We were disappointed to learn that this nursing home vaccinated only 86.259544 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this facility has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
