Registered Staff Hours
Short-term Care Quality
Even though we didn't give this nursing home a favorable overall grade, we actually gave it a very strong grade for short-term care, where it received a B. Short-term care scores are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates higher levels of skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this facility employs registered nurses. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the data this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We found that 5.6 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
This nursing home actually received a decent grade in the area of nursing as well. We awarded it a grade of B- for that category, which is not a bad score. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is well below average. Lastly, despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a nursing home has sufficient quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality
This facility received its third most favorable category grade in the category of long-term care. We awarded this facility a C in this category, which is an acceptable grade. Long-term care grades are generally used to judge a facility's performance as a traditional nursing home, as opposed to focusing on the skilled nursing services offered by a skilled nursing facility. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Frankly, we were a bit alarmed this nursing home vaccinated only 87.977104 percent of its residents for pneumonia. On a more positive note, this nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Turning the final category of government inspections, we gave this facility a D for our inspection category. This proved to be this nursing home's weakest category. We take a poor score in this category very seriously. Inspection ratings weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. Generally, you should be most cautious when considering a nursing home with severe deficiencies on a recent inspection report. This particular facility was hit with 4 deficiencies by government inspectors. The only positive thing we found is that none of its deficiencies were in the categories that suggest that they posed a risk to patient health or safety. Finally, we would like to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home received significant government fines of more than $100,000. This usually suggests that a nursing home's bad performance has been an issue for multiple years.
