Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this nursing home well overall, we want to acknowledge it received a decent grade of B- in the area of nursing. Our nursing score consists of quite a few subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This particular facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This figure is significantly below average. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this nursing home fared better in some of the quality-based metrics we assessed. It performed well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls.
We also awarded this nursing home a grade of B- for our inspections rating. This score is a more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We would argue that one of the most critical factors in evaluating an inspection report is deficiencies. We especially focus on the severity of those deficiencies. Although this nursing home had a few deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple minor deficiencies aren't necessarily the end of the world.

Short-term Care Quality
The third most favorable area we gave this facility in any category came in the category of short-term care, where we gave it a C. Our short-term care grades are meaningful for prospective residents needing rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally mandates more skilled nursing. This includes a vast range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other facilities. The tricky part is determining what bearing this had on the quality of care. The last metric we considered in this area is the number of patients who were able to leave the facility and return home. We discovered that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home, which is below average.
Long-term Care Quality
The next category we looked at was long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F for this area, which is a poor grade. For residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is an important category. On top of assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. Thankfully, this facility administered the vaccine to 96.588486 percent of its patients, which is a very respectable figure. Surprisingly, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
