Registered Staff Hours
This facility earned an inspection score which is better than its overall rating. Inspection grades are associated with the nursing home's recent government inspections. We awarded this facility a very solid grade of B+ in this category. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this category generally have few of these severe deficiencies. While this nursing home had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a strong long-term care grade. In fact, we gave it a B in that category, which happens to be one of our more favorable scores. Nursing homes that receive this kind of grade in long-term care typically provide consistent 24/7 care to ensure patients are kept in good health. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is too frequently a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we like it when a facility does not take any chances. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities third most favorable area was short-term care. We gave it a C in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this area. Short-term care grades are vital for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. We found that this facility was below average in the two key staffing areas we assessed. In fact, it supplied fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 0 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
Our next area is nursing, in which we gave this facility a C in this category. When determining a nursing home's nursing score, we look at the quantity of hours nurses are caring for patients as well as the level of licensure of the nurses. This facility averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily, which is well below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
