Registered Staff Hours
While this facility earned a decent overall score, its inspections rating is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong government inspection report this year, it received one of our better scores in that category with a grade of B+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher grades in this area most likely dodged the more severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Although this place had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Long-term Care Quality
The second highest category we awarded this facility in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a B-. Long-term care grades are based in part on a nursing home's quantity of nursing care. This means a vast scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine medical services. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 92.30769 percent of its patients, which is slightly below what we were hoping for. Nevertheless, this place keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a C. Short-term care grades are crucial for prospective residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a vast scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the typical facility. Lastly, we considered the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 0 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
