Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this nursing home a good overall score, we did give it a strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with too many severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those labeled as categories G through L. This means the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
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 tied to the nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This nursing home provides 0.5 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. In fact, it performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second lowest score was long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. On top of considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility provided the vaccine to 99.609375 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility also fared well at keeping its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area is short-term care, which is the final category we scored. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. Short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This includes a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. With a grade in this range in this area, we were not stunned to discover that this place was well below average in several staffing figures we assess. The facility supplied significantly fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most facilities. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from this facility. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.7 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
