Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home received a solid overall grade as described above, but we really wanted to emphasize its nearly flawless inspection reports in recent years. We gave them an impressive grade of A- in this category. Inspection grades are tied to many pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that score well in this area typically have few deficiencies on their reports. Most importantly, these places generally do not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. While this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were serious based on CMS' scale. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.

In addition, we also would like to note that this nursing home was given favorable long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more favorable scores in this area, with a grade of B+. This turned out to be the nursing home's second highest grade.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We gave them one of our better scores in that area, with a grade of D. Our nursing score is based on numerous factors. The most important one is the amount of time nurses spent with patients. This place provided only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care, which ended up being a low point for this nursing home. We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our short-term care category. Our short-term care grades are arguably more meaningful for individuals needing a nursing home for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a score in this range in this category, we weren't shocked to discover this place was below average in many staffing metrics we focus on. The nursing home provided significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. Lastly, we considered 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 facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their patients are able to return home so this is well below average.
