Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it did receive a very good grade in the area of inspections. We gave it a grade of B for that category, which is one of our better grades. Our inspection scores are tied to pieces of information located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid nursing homes with severe deficiencies linked to endangerment of patients. Fortunately, although this place had a few minor dings on its government inspection report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G through L. This means that CMS did not 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 the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's better category grades was in the area of long-term care. This ended up being its second most favorable category. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of C. In the category of long-term care, we assess the amount of services offered by a nursing home, rather than more medically-intensive services. On top of considering the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Fortunately, this facility provided the vaccine to 98.03278 percent of its patients, which is an above average percentage. This place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's third best score is short-term care. Nevertheless, with a grade of D in this area, it still performed somewhat poorly. Our short-term care scores are vital for people needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a wide spectrum of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Not surprisingly, we learned that this facility provides substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than a typical nursing home. Finally, we assessed the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 5.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, about half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
The last area we looked at is nursing, which proved to be a weak link for this nursing home. We gave this facility a grade of D in nursing. We assessed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses spent with residents, in determining our rating in this area. This place provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
