Registered Staff Hours
In addition to having a decent overall grade, we also want to point out that this nursing home earned favorable health inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better grades in that area, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the nursing home's overall score. Inspection grades are based on many datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Places that receive favorable grades in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these facilities should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
One of the other reasons we graded this nursing home so highly is that it earned a very impressive nursing rating. In that category, we gave this facility an B-. Our nursing rating is based on the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We factor in both the levels of licensure of the nurses as well as the amount of time spent with residents. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, which is not an impressive total. Finally, while this facility got dinged a bit for its nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in a few of our quality measures. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this area.

Unfortunately, this nursing home vaccinated just 89.78022 percent of its patients for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

The final category we scored is short-term care, which ended up being this facility's least impressive area. Sadly, it received an abysmal F for this area, which is clearly concerning. In calculating our short-term care ratings, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is often a fair measure of the facility's rehabilitation services. Considering its score in this area, we were not stunned to learn that this facility was well below average in terms of its number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its patients based on the measures we looked at. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that just 2.8 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
