Registered Staff Hours
In addition to having a decent overall rating, we also want to point out that this nursing home received favorable inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall score. Inspection scores take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these factors by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This nursing home was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered severe. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to create an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't lead you to cross a nursing home off your list.
Short-term Care Quality
This facilities second most favorable area is short-term care. We gave it a B- in this area. This is basically a slightly below average grade in this area. Our short-term care scores are important for residents requiring rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Unfortunately, this nursing home was below average in terms of its level of registered nurse and physical therapy hours provided to its residents based on the metrics we assessed. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients returned home. At most facilities, closer to half of their patients are able to return home so this figure is below average.

Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this place performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's weakest category is long-term care, which is the final category we analyzed. For this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. For patients looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to skilled nursing, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home provided the vaccine to 94.93433 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than the majority of nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
