Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in that category, with an A. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection grades account for several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we still had positive view of this facility's recent inspections.
Building on this nursing home's list of strengths, it also received an excellent nursing rating. We gave them an impressive grade of B- in this area. When computing our nursing scores, we assess both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a low total compared with most facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics. While this facility got dinged a bit for nursing hours, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it did well in this metric. This can be a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by having a protocol of turning a resident even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care, where this nursing home was given a grade of C in this category. Our long-term care grades are more important for folks requiring more conventional assistance related to personal care. Once we assessed the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then looked at the facility's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility vaccinated 69.98088 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be quite a bit less than average. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
Moving on to the fourth area, this facility didn't perform well. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this was its weakest area. Our short-term care scores are arguably more critical for people in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation generally mandates additional skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its poor score in this category, we were not stunned to find that this place provides far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
