Registered Staff Hours
We want to draw your attention to the fact that this facility outperformed its overall grade in the category of inspections. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, we gave it one of our best grades in this area with an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in determining our inspection ratings. One key factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be quite minor. Fortunately, although this nursing home had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G through L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's higher category scores was in the area of long-term care. In that category, we gave this nursing home a B+. Facilities that receive this kind of grade in this category tend to provide consistent around the clock care to make sure patients are well cared for. On top of looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 97.08738 percent of its residents, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia is often a dangerous condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility does not roll the dice on this issue. Lastly, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

This facility's next best category grade came in the area of nursing. In that category, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. There are a number of criteria included in this category. Most of these subcategories reflect the quantity of nurse staffing. This place averages just 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, which is a very low figure. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this place surprisingly fared better in some of the quality measures we assessed. In fact, it performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last area we analyzed was short-term care. We gave it an abysmal F for this category, which is an abysmal grade. This is clearly a significant concern. With our short-term care category, we endeavor to forge a sound barometer for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the facility's offerings of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. With a score this poor for this category, we were not shocked to discover this place was well below average in several staffing figures we assess. It supplied far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients that returned home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 3.5 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home.
