Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall score, we gave this facility an A for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall rating. Arguably the most critical factor we look at in determining our inspection scores is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's inspection reports. Facilities with higher grades in this category typically dodged the most severe deficiencies involving patient abuse or death. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are found in categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This means that the government inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies on this facility's report to pose an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
The second best area we awarded this facility in any area came in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. Our long-term care grades are more important for folks needing more traditional services related to personal care. After assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we turned to the facility's vaccination records. Frankly, we were a bit bothered by the fact that this nursing home vaccinated 73.77049 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which happens to be several points less than average. On a more positive note, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Not surprisingly, we learned that this nursing home provides far less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we considered the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 0 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit off the national average.
This facility's worst category was nursing, which is the final category we looked at. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category.

This number is significantly below the national average. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing ratings.
