Registered Staff Hours
In addition to being a respectable nursing home overall, this facility really excelled in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities performed better in this area. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate risk to resident safety or health. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspection reports are uncommon in the industry.
Short-term Care Quality
In addition, we gave this facility a B+ in our short-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. In calculating our short-term care grades, we quantify the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, speech therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. Our objective is to create a barometer for sizing up the rehabilitation services of various nursing homes. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not all facilities employs these types of nurses. However, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.1 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.

This is a low total compared with most other facilities. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care. In many cases, the quality of nursing care is just as important as the quantity of hours of care provided.
Long-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, we gave this nursing home a grade of D for the area of long-term care. This was the nursing home's least impressive category rating. Unfortunately, this score hurt the facility's overall profile to some degree. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we next considered the nursing home's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.623856 percent of its patients for pneumonia. To our surprise, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
