Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it did receive a very good grade in the area of inspections. We gave it a B+ for that category, which is one of our better grades. Inspection grades take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home received 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This tells you that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the pack score in the category of short-term care, where we awarded it a C. With our short-term care assessment, we strive to craft a valuable gauge for rehabilitation services. In doing so, we look at the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this area is the number of residents who ultimately were able to return home from the facility. We found that just 5.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. This figure was below average.

This facilities third best category is long-term care. We gave it a C in this category. This is basically a middle of the road score in this area. Our long-term care ratings are crucial for patients looking for non-healthcare services such as personal care. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home gave the vaccine to 100 percent of its residents, which is more than the average nursing home. Finally, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Turning to our final category, we awarded this facility a D for nursing. This was the facility's weakest category score. The nursing score assesses several data points, but the main consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
