Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its strong overall grade, we awarded this nursing home a grade of A for our inspections rating. Inspection scores are based on several datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. While this facility had a few minor dings on its report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility really excelled in the area of short-term care, where it received a score of A. Not many facilities performed more favorably in this area. Short-term care scores are important for people requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a broad range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every facility employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information this nursing home provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that 6.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-. This facility didn't perform quite as well in this category as it did in some other categories. Nevertheless, this is still a respectable score. In computing our nursing grades, we look at both nursing hours and the training levels of those nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day, which is not an impressive total. Finally, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it actually excelled in some of our quality metrics. With fewer than five percent of its patients suffering from pressure ulcers, it performed remarkably well in this subcategory.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest area is long-term care, which is the final category we looked at. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a bad sign for patient care and it may indicate that the place is not as well-staffed with nurses and aids. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we turned to the nursing home's vaccination record. Candidly, we were a bit concerned this nursing home vaccinated a relatively low 80.76923 percent of its residents for pneumonia. To our surprise, this facility was actually decent at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. This is its best feature in this category.
