Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home earned a decent overall rating, its inspections score is notably better than its overall grade. Due to a strong health inspection report this year, it earned a strong score in that category with a B+. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in computing these inspection grades. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be relatively insignificant. While this facility had a few minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are ones labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average score in this category. In computing these short-term care scores, we analyze the nursing home's skilled nursing services, such as those performed by registered nurses, respiratory therapists, physical therapists and other types of therapists. The purpose is to create a tool for sizing up the rehabilitation services of nursing homes. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this also affected quality of care. Lastly, we assessed the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.9 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below average.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility's third highest area came in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. With our long-term care grade, we focus on the volume of care provided by a nursing home, along with a series of quality datapoints. Once we assessed the quantity of nursing care, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. We were pleased to discover that this nursing home vaccinated 100 percent of its patients against pneumonia. This nursing home keeps its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
The next category we analyzed was nursing, which ended up being a weak link for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our nursing category. Nursing grades are based in large part on nurse staffing levels. With just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable measures of the quality of nursing care.
