Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was decent, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One key criteria we look at is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better scores in this area tend to have very few severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Based on this, we had a generally positive view of this nursing home's inspections.
Long-term Care Quality
Another one of this facility's better category grades came in the category of long-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a grade of B+. It actually fared better than most facilities in this category. Long-term care scores of this caliber generally require both 24/7 care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine healthcare services. After considering the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.69788 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is an impressive figure. Pneumonia sadly can be a dangerous health condition for nursing home patients so we like it when a nursing home doesn't take any chances. Clearly, this nursing home is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Moving on to another strength for this facility, it also earned an elite nursing grade. In fact, we gave this facility an D. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time the nurses worked with residents, in determining our score in this category. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing grades. This place fared well when it comes to avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's worst category was short-term care, which is the final category we scored. Sadly, it received an F for this category. Despite multiple acceptable scores in other categories, this score is nevertheless of a concern so we wanted to make sure you are aware. Our short-term care grades are based on a nursing home's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This means a wide range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, in addition to other variations of therapy. With a grade this poor in this area, we were not stunned to find this nursing home was below average in the two key staffing figures we looked at. The facility provided far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other facilities. Finally, we looked at the percentage of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This was not a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 3 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
