Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this nursing home received a decent overall score is its impeccable health inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being relatively insignificant. While this place had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second best area is short-term care. We awarded it a grade of B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the road score in this category. In our short-term care score, we strive to craft a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we analyze the nursing home's scope of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, according to the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents that who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.5 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next highest category ended up being long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B-. In calculating our long-term care grades, we analyze the assistance with daily living offered to the facility's residents. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility gave the vaccine to 99.15014 percent of its residents, which is an above average statistic. This facility also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
The final area we looked at is nursing, which proved to be this facility's least impressive category. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is certainly a major disappointment. We looked at the qualifications of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the number of hours those nurses were with residents, in determining our grade in this area. This nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing ratings. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
