Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an excellent inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far superior to its overall grade. In the inspections category, we gave this facility an A+. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection grades is deficiencies. Deficiencies are found on a nursing home's inspection reports. Nursing homes with higher scores in this area typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving health risks or even death. This facility was assessed 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies to cause an imminent risk to patient health or safety. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility also performed favorably in the area of long-term care, where it received a grade of A. Few facilities performed more favorably in this category. Facilities that excel in long-term care typically are well-staffed and offer extensive hands on care to patients. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we also looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 99.13793 percent of its residents, which is very impressive. Pneumonia is often a life threatening health condition for nursing home residents so we prefer when a facility doesn't take any chances. Lastly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we analyzed was short-term care, where this nursing home's grade wasn't nearly as impressive as some of its other grades. In that category, we awarded this nursing home an F. Short-term care ratings are based on the facility's quantity of highly-skilled nursing services. This includes a wide range of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. It appears that this facility was below average in several staffing areas we assessed. The facility offered fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. This wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
This facility's weakest area is nursing, which is the final category we looked at. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category. Even with a few decent grades in other areas, this score is nevertheless disappointing so we wanted to make sure you are aware. We scrutinized the licensure of nurses working for the facility, in addition to the quantity of time the nurses were with patients, in calculating our grade in this area. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing scores. This place fared well when it comes to minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these data points to be measures of the quality of nursing care.
