Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its favorable overall score, we awarded this facility a grade of A for the area of inspections. Our inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. Places with better grades in this category typically have few of these severe deficiencies. This facility was hit with 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
Contributing to its profile, this facility also received a score of B+ for its short-term care rating. This is an above average score in this area. Our short-term care scores are vital for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional highly-skilled nursing. This includes a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. The last metric we considered in this category is the number of residents that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 5.4 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

This facility also received an impressive long-term care grade. Indeed, we awarded it an above average grade of B in this category. When nursing homes receive this type of score in this category it is a good sign for patient care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses aids. Once we assessed the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This nursing home vaccinated 94.117645 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Vaccines are vital to keeping patients out of the hospital. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next category we graded was nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B-. There are numerous criteria within this grade. Many of the criteria reflect nurse staffing. This nursing home provides only 0 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is a somewhat uninspiring figure which is well below the national average. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is usually an indicator that a nursing home has quality controls in place. Some falls could be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses to assist its residents.
