Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our higher scores in that category, with an A-. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find deficiency counts for this nursing home. Without the deficiency data for this facility, it ended up being difficult to assess it in the area of inspections.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's short-term care grade ended up being one of its higher grades. The nursing home was given a B- in this category. Short-term care grades are typically employed to grade a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to have quality rehabilitation services, facilities generally need to have higher levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other types of therapists. Unfortunately, we found that this nursing home provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The key is determining what bearing this had on quality of care. The last statistic we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.

The nursing score consists of quite a few subcategories, most of which are associated with levels of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we assessed was long-term care, is this facility's least impressive area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in this category. Facilities that do not score well in long-term care often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine healthcare services we looked at. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination records. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this nursing home vaccinated only 80.52631 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this place was actually decent at keeping its residents out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This was its best score in this category.
