Registered Staff Hours
To pair with its decent overall grade, we awarded this nursing home an A- for our inspections rating. This is far better than the facility's overall grade. Inspection grades are based on datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Facilities that excel in this category have few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with endangerment of patients. Unfortunately, we weren't able to locate information about this nursing home's deficiencies. We wish we had more data for this nursing home. Without deficiency related data, it ended up being a challenge to grade this facility in this category.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable category was long-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is essentially a middle of the pack grade in this category.

After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination data. This nursing home vaccinated 96.66667 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is more than the majority of nursing homes. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. The nursing rating includes a number of factors. The most heavily weighted factor is the number of hours nurses spent with residents. This place provided a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This is not a very impressive figure. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This nursing home performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we graded is short-term care, turned out to be this facility's worst area. We awarded this nursing home a grade of D in that category. With our short-term care category, we attempt to craft a sound barometer for rehabilitation. In doing so, we analyze the facility's scope of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its score in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of the quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its patients based on the figures we looked at. Honestly, this was what we expected here. The final statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients who were able to leave the nursing home and return to the community. We discovered that just 5.3 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home, which is well below average. The combination of these subpar statistics was damning for this facility's short-term care grade.
