Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite insignificant. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility's second best score is long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still performed somewhat badly. Long-term care grades in this range generally are a bad sign for the quantity and quality of care provided by nurses and aids, as well as the levels of routine medical care available. In addition to assessing the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to only 49.606297 percent of its patients, which is slightly concerning. To our surprise, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home had fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. This was its best score in this category.

Not surprisingly, we learned that this place provides significantly less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average nursing home. Finally, we considered the number of residents that who were able to eventually return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either.

This is well below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings.
