Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we gave it a B- for our inspections rating. This score is more respectable than this facility's overall grade. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had no 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 couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
One of the other reasons we rated this nursing home so highly is that it received a very impressive nursing rating. In fact, nursing turned out to be its second best category grade. In that category, we awarded this facility an C. When calculating our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the training levels of the nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we looked at. In fact, it performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the number of hours of care offered.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's next most favorable category came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a C. Our short-term care ratings are believed to be most critical for those in need of a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical facility. The hope is that this does not adversely impact the quality of care. The last item we looked at in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 4.8 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we scored was long-term care, ended up being this nursing home's weakest area. We awarded this facility a grade of D in this area. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 97.45223 percent of its residents. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
