Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better grade than the place's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Arguably the most critical factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities with better scores in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to be an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home an impressive grade in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B+ in this area, which happens to be one of our more impressive scores. Facilities that excel in this category typically provide residents with more supervision and stay on top of routine medical care. After we finished assessing the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 96.084335 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia tragically can be a deadly condition for nursing home patients so we prefer when a facility does not leave this to chance. Lastly, 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.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Nursing ratings are largely tied to a nursing home's level 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. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home excelled in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. In fact, it scored well in terms of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
The next area we assessed is short-term care, which turned out to be this facility's weakest category. It received an abysmal F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. With our short-term care grade, we try to forge a sound gauge for rehabilitation. In doing so, we look at a facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. In this place's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than a typical facility. The final measure we considered in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.4 percent of its residents returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
