Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the area of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most significant factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies can be found on a facility's inspection reports. Nursing homes with better grades in this area most likely dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. While this place had some minor dings on its report, it had no severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are those found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this nursing home a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our more impressive scores. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in this category it is typically a good sign for patient care and indicates that the nursing home is well-staffed with nurses and aids. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 98.72449 percent of its patients, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia tragically can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave this to chance. 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 figure.

This nursing home offered just 0.2 hours of nursing care per patient each day. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive area is short-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. For this category, we gave this nursing home a grade of just D. In the category of short-term care, we endeavor to evaluate indicators of a facility's rehabilitation services. We look at the facility's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its quantity of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the staffing figures we looked at. The last statistic we considered in this area is the number of patients that returned home from the nursing home. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.2 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was well below the national average.
