Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility one of our higher grades in short-term care, where it earned an A-. This is notably better than the facility's overall grade, which was certainly not elite. With our short-term care score, we attempt to craft a meaningful measure for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we analyze a facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The final measure we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that 6.8 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
Inspections is another area where this nursing home excelled. In fact, we gave this nursing home an B+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than its overall score. Our inspection ratings account for several factors found on a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area typically have few 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. Even some of the best nursing homes receive an occasional ding on their inspection report.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing grade is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of skill of those nurses and the quantity of hours spent with patients. 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 surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we analyzed is long-term care. This facility was given a C in the category. In calculating our long-term care scores, we size up the personal care received by a facility's residents. After we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination data. This facility vaccinated 93.8326 percent of its residents against pneumonia. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
