Registered Staff Hours
Although this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a very good score in the category of inspections. We awarded it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better grades. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in calculating our inspection ratings is deficiencies. Deficiencies can be found on a nursing home's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid nursing homes that had a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to patient safety or health. A few minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
We gave this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating and that actually ended up being its next most respectable category. For prospective residents in need of a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. One of the datapoints we considered on top of nursing hours is vaccinations. Fortunately, this facility administered the pneumonia vaccine to 98.27586 percent of its patients. To our surprise, this nursing home was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.

Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.

Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was short-term care, which is the last category we assessed. For this category, we awarded this facility a grade of just D. With our short-term care score, we attempt to create a meaningful barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we analyze a facility's level of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Considering its score in this category, we weren't surprised to learn that this nursing home is well below average in terms of the number of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the metrics we looked at. Honestly, this was about what we expected here. The last metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of patients that ultimately returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its patients returning home.
