Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not bad, it really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it a grade of A+ for that category, which is one of our best scores. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection grades. One key factor is deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some can be relatively minor. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none were severe based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also gave this facility a decent score in the category of long-term care, where we gave it a grade of B-. In the area of long-term care, we assess the quantity of care offered by a facility, rather than more sophisticated services. After we finished looking at the amount of nursing care, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination record. We were optimistic to find that this facility vaccinated 97.95222 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This nursing home was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

Short-term Care Quality
The final area we rated is short-term care, which proved to be this facility's least impressive area. Sadly, it received an F in this category, which is clearly a major concern. In computing our short-term care scores, we scrutinize a nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other types of therapists. This rating is frequently a useful measure of a nursing home's rehabilitation. As you might expect, we found that this nursing home offers far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than the typical facility. Finally, we looked at the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. This definitely wasn't a strength for this nursing home. We found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents returned home. At most facilities, around half of their residents are able to return home so this is well below average.
