Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this facility an A for our inspections rating. This grade is far better than its overall rating. Inspection scores are based on datapoints located in the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that score well in this category have very few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these facilities generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also received an impressive long-term care score. As a matter of fact, we awarded it a B in that category, which happens to be one of our better. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category typically provide consistent around the clock care to make sure residents are well cared for. On top of assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 92.68293 percent of its residents, which is somewhat less than we were hoping for. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not an impressive grade. Short-term care scores are based in part on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a vast scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, in addition to other forms of therapy. With a score this poor in this area, we weren't shocked to find that this place was below average in the two key staffing areas we focus on. The facility supplied substantially fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most nursing homes. Finally, we considered the number of patients who ultimately returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5.2 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was well off the national average.
The final category we graded is nursing, which is this facility's least impressive category. Sadly, it received an F in this area, which is obviously concerning. We looked at the skill-level of nurses employed by the facility, in addition to the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in computing our rating in this area. This particular nursing home offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This number is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.
