Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this facility favorably overall, we did give it an excellent score in the area of inspections, where it earned a grade of A-. Perhaps the most important factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically in your best interest to avoid facilities that have a long list of deficiencies. This facility received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This indicates that CMS didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second most favorable area is its long-term care score, where it was given a grade of C. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the criteria we considered in addition to nurse's aid hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 99.0566 percent of its patients. This nursing home keeps its patients out of the hospital. It had only 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Unfortunately, this facility only received a grade of D for its nursing grade, which was actually one of its better category grades. When computing our nursing ratings, we factor in both the number of hours nurses spend with residents and the skill levels of the nurses. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing ratings. This facility performed well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
Turning to the fourth area, this facility really didn't perform well in this category either. With a poor grade of F in short-term care, this is just about as bad as it gets. Our short-term care grades are believed to be more critical for patients in need of rehabilitation services. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not merely nursing services, but also physical and occupational therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. Based on its grade in this area, we weren't surprised to learn that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the data we assessed. Lastly, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.1 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
