Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our highest scores. Inspection grades account for several factors found on a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You should avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. Amazingly, this was one of the few nursing homes in the country that had no deficiencies whatsoever on its inspection report. This is very impressive. The lack of deficiencies proved to be this place's greatest strength.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second most favorable category is long-term care. We gave it a grade of B- in this area. This is basically a middle of the road score in this category. With our long-term care category, we analyze the quantity of care provided by a nursing home, along with a few qualitative metrics. In addition to assessing the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This facility vaccinated 95.37954 percent of its patients, which is more than the average nursing home. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Unfortunately, we gave this facility an F for its short-term care grade. In the category of short-term care, we seek to qualify indicators of a facility's rehabilitation. We assess a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical, occupational and other therapists. Given its score in this area, we weren't stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of the number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the figures we looked at. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 5.1 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
The next category we scored is nursing. We gave it an abysmal F for this area, which is a very poor score. There are numerous data points within this grade. Most of these factors are tied to the quantity of nurse staffing. This facility averaged just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This figure is well below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
