Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of A. This is a much better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more favorable category scores came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. If you are seeking services other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care grades. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. This nursing home vaccinated 47.992165 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is slightly lower than we anticipated but still a respectable percentage. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we had hoped, we were pleased to find facility was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an impressive grade of D. The nursing grade includes several subcategories. The most important variable is the amount of time nurses spend with residents. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing scores. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded was short-term care, which ended up being this nursing home's worst area. It received an abysmal F in this category, which is obviously concerning. Our short-term care scores are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, not to mention other types of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we were not surprised to find that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the data we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected to find. The last metric we assessed in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these poor metrics doomed this nursing home's short-term care score.
