Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of A. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection grades. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite insignificant. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a favorable score in long-term care. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our higher scores. Facilities that excel in long-term care tend to provide patients with better supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 98.9026 percent of its patients. Vaccines are vital to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next best area was short-term care. We awarded it a grade of C in this area. This is basically a middle of the pack grade in this category. Our short-term care scores are presumably most critical for patients needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires more highly-skilled nursing. This includes not just nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of physical therapy and registered nurse hours provided to its patients based on the metrics we assessed. The question is whether this also impacted quality of care. Finally, we assessed the percentage of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 5.4 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their residents are able to return home so this figure is below average.
This facility's weakest area was nursing, which is the last area we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this area. In spite of several acceptable grades in other areas, this grade is nevertheless concerning so we would like to to point it out. Our nursing score is primarily tied to the nursing home's nurse staffing. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is well below average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
