Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Our inspection scores weigh several factors found on a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid nursing homes with too many deficiencies flagged. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home received its second most favorable category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this facility a B- in this area, which is a decent grade. In the category of long-term care, we focus on the amount of care provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility vaccinated 99.11504 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. This nursing home also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

In addition, we gave this facility an F in the area of nursing care. Nursing ratings are mostly tied to a nursing home's nurse staffing. This nursing home offered a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we graded is short-term care, where this facility was given a very poor grade here as well. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this area, which is definitely a major disappointment. With our short-term care assessment, we endeavor to craft a valuable measure for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a nursing home's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Given its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility was well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the data we looked at. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this facility. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
