Registered Staff Hours
While this facility's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the category of inspections. In fact, we gave it a grade of B+ for that area, which is one of our better scores. Inspection grades weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can learn more about each of these items by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Fortunately, although this place had some minor dings on its inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the inspectors didn't deem any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not the end of the world.
Long-term Care Quality
One of this facility's better category scores was in the category of long-term care. This ended up being its second best category. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B-. Long-term care ratings are based in part on a nursing home's volume of nursing care. This includes a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.71098 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.02 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility's second worse score was short-term care, where it received a grade of just D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. Our short-term care ratings are based in part on the nursing home's quantity of skilled skilled healthcare professionals. This means a wide spectrum of nursing services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, not to mention other variations of therapy. With its weak score in this category, we were not surprised to discover this place offers far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than most other nursing homes. Finally, we assessed the number of patients who were able to return to the community from this nursing home. We found that just 4.9 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.
Switching gears to the last category, we gave this facility a grade of D for nursing. This is the nursing home's weakest category grade. Nursing grades are based largely on nurse staffing levels. This particular nursing home averaged a meager 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day. This number is well below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in computing our nursing ratings. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
