Registered Staff Hours
While we were not complementary of this place's overall performance, it actually received 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 category with a B+. Our inspection grades are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies associated with endangerment of patients. This place was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none were considered to be major deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to resident health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home was given its next most favorable category grade in the area of long-term care. We gave this nursing home a B- in this area, which is a decent grade. In computing these long-term care scores, we look at the nursing home's personal care services. On top of considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility gave the vaccine to just 89.189186 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of B-. Our nursing grade features a variety of factors. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This place provides only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a somewhat alarming figure which is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures. While this nursing home got docked a bit for its nursing hours, it actually excelled in some of these quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as by employing a policy of moving patients even once per day.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we graded is short-term care. It received an F in this category, which is a very poor score. Our short-term care grade is often employed to gauge a nursing home's rehabilitation services. To provide high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to feature higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. As you might expect, we discovered that this nursing home provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than a typical nursing home. The last item we assessed in this area is the number of residents that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.3 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
