Registered Staff Hours
It should be noted that this nursing home's inspection grade outpaced its overall grade. We gave it a grade of B+ for its inspections grade, which is a very solid score. Arguably the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Places with better grades in this area most likely avoided the more severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This place received 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This indicates that CMS did not deem any of the deficiencies an imminent risk to patient safety or health. Remember that deficiency-free inspection reports are rare in this industry.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades was in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B. It actually outpaced most nursing homes in this area. Nursing homes that excel in long-term care tend to provide residents with better supervision and stay on top of routine healthcare services. Once we looked at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 95.90909 percent of its patients against pneumonia. Vaccines are critical to keeping residents out of the hospital. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Our nursing score assesses several components, however, the paramount one is the quantity of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This place performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a facility has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can often be prevented if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we assessed is short-term care. For that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our short-term care ratings are thought to be more important for residents in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. This includes not only nursing services, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. We were not able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last measure we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who were able to leave the facility and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is actually below average.
