Registered Staff Hours
While we were not very complementary of this nursing home's overall score, it received a very impressive inspection report this year. In fact, it received a nearly flawless inspection report this year. As a result, it earned one of our best scores in that category with an A-. Our inspection ratings weigh a host of factors included in a facility's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the number and severity of deficiencies. You generally want to avoid places with a list of severe deficiencies flagged. Fortunately, although this facility had some minor dings on its government inspection report, it had zero severe deficiencies. Severe deficiencies are labeled as categories G, H, I, J, K and L. This tells you that the 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 aren't the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility only earned a grade of D for its short-term care grade, which is actually one of its higher category scores. Our short-term care grades are presumably most meaningful for residents in need of rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more highly-skilled nursing. This means not just nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other forms of therapy. With its weak grade in this area, we weren't stunned to discover this place provided far fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most nursing homes. The final metric we looked at in this category is the percentage of residents who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its patients returning home. This was well below the national average.

With a meager 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis, this nursing home's nurse staffing levels were quite a bit below average. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. Many consider these statistics to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
Long-term Care Quality
The final category we rated is long-term care, which is a low point for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of just D in our long-term care category. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. After we finished assessing the quantity of care provided by nurses, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were optimistic to learn that this nursing home vaccinates 96.09375 percent of its residents against pneumonia. Surprisingly, this facility also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
