Registered Staff Hours
This facility's best category score came in the area of nursing. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+. It outpaced most nursing homes in this category. Our nursing score includes many datapoints, but the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular nursing home provided 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home performed very well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's short-term care score is one of its better features. The facility was given a grade of B- in this area. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for those requiring rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation generally utilizes additional skilled nursing services. This means not only nursing services, but also physical and respiratory therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The last item we considered in this category is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the nursing home and return home. We discovered that just 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.

We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This is a very respectable nursing score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. This facility was assessed 7 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we scored is long-term care. In this category, we gave this facility a grade of C. If you are looking for anything other than rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care ratings. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Finally, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
