Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better grades in that area, with an A-. This is a much better score than the place's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection scores. One of those factors is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of these deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some of these are quite minor. It does not appear that we have information about this nursing home's deficiencies. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a positive score in long-term care. This facility earned a B in this area, which turns out to be one of our higher grades. Long-term care scores in this range generally require both around the clock care from nurses and aids, as well as quality routine medical care. In addition to considering the amount of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 76.13637 percent of its residents. This is a bit below what we expected but still a reasonably acceptable percentage. Clearly, this place is doing something right in this area as it was able to keep its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
The next area we looked at was short-term care. In that category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. Our short-term care scores are believed to be most meaningful for those in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation usually utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. In this facility's case, we were surprised to learn that it actually provides less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. The hope is that this does not adversely affect the quality of care. The final statistic we looked at in this category is the number of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. We found that just 5.7 percent of this facility's residents returned home.
The final area we assessed was nursing, which turned out to be this nursing home's weakest area. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is obviously a major disappointment. Our nursing score assesses a handful of factors, but the paramount one is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This place offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident daily. This number is far below average. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This facility performed well when it comes to avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
