Registered Staff Hours
While we were not high on this facility overall, we awarded it an A- for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the nursing home's overall grade. Our inspection scores account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid facilities with too many severe deficiencies flagged. While this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G through L. This tells you the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
We also awarded this facility a grade of B- for our nursing rating. Nursing grades are primarily based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a relatively low total compared to most other facilities. Lastly, we also assessed several nursing quality measures. Although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its patients sustaining pressure ulcers, it did remarkably well in this subcategory. This is often a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can generally be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as employing a policy of turning patients even once per day.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a grade of C in this category. This is essentially a slightly below average score in this area. Our long-term care grades are based in part on a facility's amount of nursing care. This includes a broad spectrum of personal care services, ranging from help with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this facility vaccinated only 83.15789 percent of its residents. Nevertheless, this place excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we scored is short-term care, in which this facility received a bottom of the barrel grade here also. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our short-term care scores are thought to be most meaningful for residents needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The last datapoint we assessed in this area is the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below the national average.
