Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its relatively modest overall grade, we gave this nursing home an A for our inspections rating. This is far more impressive than its overall score. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can find more information about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This tells you that CMS did not consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A few minor dings are not necessarily something to panic about.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. There are many criteria within this grade. Many of the criteria are tied to nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best category was short-term care. We awarded it a C in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this area. In the category of short-term care, we strive to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We analyze the facility's skilled nursing services, such as the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not all nursing homes employs these types of nurses. However, according to the data they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who eventually returned home from this nursing home. We found that 3.9 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was well below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next area we rated was long-term care. We gave this nursing home a D in the area of long-term care, rendering this the facility's least impressive grade. If you are seeking anything other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each nursing home's long-term care scores. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility administered the vaccine to 94.24084 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
