Registered Staff Hours
Although we did not rate this nursing home highly overall, we want to draw your attention to its excellent health inspections in recent years. We awarded them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid nursing homes that have a long list of severe deficiencies. We weren't able to locate deficiency data for this nursing home. Without having deficiency data for this nursing home, it ended up being difficult to really evaluate the place in this area.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's long-term care grade is one of its respectable grades. The nursing home was awarded a C in this area. Our long-term care grades are pivotal for residents requiring non-healthcare services such as personal care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home administered the vaccine to 94.58599 percent of its patients, which is an above average statistic. This nursing home 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 an impressively low figure.

We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. In determining our nursing grades, we assess both staffing levels and the levels of licensure of those nurses. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This figure is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at several nursing quality-based metrics. Although this facility got docked a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in a few of these quality-based metrics. With less than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed well in this statistic. This can be an indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by offering better nursing care, such as by employing a protocol of moving a resident at least once a day.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care. This facility was given an abysmal grade of F in that category. In calculating our short-term care grades, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of highly skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This grade is often a reliable assessment of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides substantially less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This definitely wasn't a strength for this facility. We found that just 3.9 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most nursing homes, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
