Registered Staff Hours
We would like to point out that this nursing home's inspection rating exceeded its overall score. This facility earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. Inspection ratings account for a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Nursing homes with better grades in this area tend to have very few of these severe deficiencies. This place was assessed 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not consider any of these deficiencies to create an imminent threat to patient health or safety. Keep in mind that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home also was awarded a positive score in our short-term care category. We gave this facility a better than average grade of B in this category. Short-term care grades are important for residents in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional highly-skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy. Unfortunately, we were not able to locate information about this nursing home's registered nurse or physical therapy staffing. Lastly, we looked at the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 5.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was awarded strong long-term care marks this year. We gave them one of our more impressive grades in that area, with a B. When nursing homes receive this kind of grade in long-term care it is typically a good sign for resident care and indicates that the facility is well-staffed with nurses and aids. On top of assessing the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 97.14964 percent of its patients, which is much higher than the average nursing home. Finally, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. It had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
The next area we looked at is nursing. We gave this facility a grade of C in that category. We assessed the levels of nurses employed by the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses spent with patients, in calculating our rating in this area. This nursing home averages just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low figure. Lastly, nursing ratings also consider quality-based metrics, such as preventing major falls. Despite not having the most impressive total nursing hours per resident, this nursing home performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is usually a good indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place. Many falls can be avoided if a nursing home provides enough nurses aids to assist its patients.
