Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't grade this nursing home favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent score in the category of inspections, where it received a grade of A-. Inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we consider is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a bunch of severe deficiencies flagged. 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. Even with this deficiency, this place still had a relatively positive report.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's second best category was long-term care. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B-. In our long-term care grade, we analyze the quantity of services provided by a facility, as well as a handful of qualitative statistics. Once we looked at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination data. We were somewhat surprised to discover that this nursing home vaccinated just 77.26397 percent of its patients for pneumonia.

Short-term care ratings are crucial for patients in need of rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. This means a vast scope of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other variations of therapy.

Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The final item we assessed in this area is the number of patients who ultimately returned home from the facility.
