Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this facility's overall performance, it did receive an impressive inspection report this year with few dings from the applicable government inspectors. As a result, it received one of our better grades in that area with a grade of B+. Arguably the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of deficiencies. While this facility had a few deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area is long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack score in this category. For prospective patients in need of a permanent residence as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 85.73021 percent of its residents. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

With fewer than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory.
Short-term Care Quality
Switching gears to our last area, this facility really didn't fare very well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as terrible as it gets. Our short-term care grade is typically employed to score a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must feature higher levels of highly skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, respiratory therapists and other licensed professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that were able to return home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either.
