Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, it really fared well in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we consider in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. While this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A couple minor deficiencies should not lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of C. Our nursing score is primarily tied to a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This is a relatively low total compared with most nursing homes. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home actually fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It scored well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers.

Long-term Care Quality
The third category we analyzed is long-term care, where this facility was given a C in this category. In determining our long-term care grades, we size up the assistance with daily living received by the nursing home's residents. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Candidly, we were a bit worried that this facility administered the vaccine to just 90.44586 percent of its patients. Nevertheless, this facility was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.
Short-term Care Quality
The next category we scored is short-term care, which ended up being a weak spot for this facility. We gave this facility a grade of D for our short-term care category. Short-term care grades are vital for individuals in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates additional skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a wide scope of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we were not surprised to learn that this place is well below average in terms of the quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The last measure we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who ultimately returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.7 percent of its patients returning home.
