Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has earned favorable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them a strong score in that area, with a B+. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall score. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in calculating our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these end up being quite minor. This particular nursing home received 9 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
The second most favorable category we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our short-term care grade is often used to assess a facility's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer higher levels of skilled nursing. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other licensed professionals. In this place's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is always that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final statistic we considered in this area is the percentage of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's patients returned home.

Another strength of this facility is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. We assessed the licensure of nurses at the facility, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in determining our score in this category. With only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day, this place's nurse staffing levels were well below the national average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This place performed well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at is long-term care, which is a weak spot for this facility. We awarded this nursing home a grade of just D for our long-term care category. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 97.258064 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this facility was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
