Registered Staff Hours
While this facility'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 highest scores. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in computing our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes with better scores in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving things like patient abuse. This place received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a decent grade in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of C. In the category of long-term care, we focus more on the amount of services provided by a nursing home, rather than more healthcare-oriented services. After we finished assessing the volume of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.47917 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Finally, this place was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's third highest category ended up being its short-term care grade, where it was awarded a C. In computing our short-term care ratings, we assess the facility's skilled nursing services, including those performed by registered nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists and other types of skilled professionals. Our goal is to formulate a measure for comparing the rehabilitation services of different nursing homes. Unfortunately, this facility was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. The critical question is whether this also affected quality of care. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.4 percent of this facility's patients returned home.
The next area we assessed was nursing, proved to be this nursing home's least impressive area. We gave this facility a D in that category. Our nursing score is largely associated with a nursing home's level of nurse staffing. This place provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
