Registered Staff Hours
On top of having a decent overall score, we also wanted to note that this facility received favorable nursing marks this year. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's top grade. We looked at the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This nursing home provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place performed very well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
This facility also earned a favorable inspection rating. In fact, its inspection rating proved to be its second best category. In that category, we gave this facility a B. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in computing our inspection scores is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better scores in this category most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This nursing home received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.

Short-term Care Quality
This facilities next most favorable category was short-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this category. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this area. In the category of short-term care, we strive to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at the nursing home's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses and physical therapists. Unfortunately, this place was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The real question is whether this adversely affected quality of care. Lastly, we looked at the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was actually quite a bit below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we scored was long-term care, which turned out to be a weak link for this nursing home. We awarded this nursing home a D for long-term care. For long-term care residents, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to discover that this nursing home vaccinates 98.630135 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Surprisingly, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
