Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was decent, 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 highest scores. These inspection ratings weigh several factors, including deficiencies and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these factors by obtaining copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility was assessed 3 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't deem any of these deficiencies to be an imminent threat to patient health or safety. A couple minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we gave this facility a grade of B+ in our long-term care category. This is one of our more impressive grades. For long-term care residents, the nursing home's primary objective is to keep patients as healthy and safe as possible. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. One of the datapoints we considered after nursing hours is vaccines. This nursing home administered the pneumonia vaccination to 77.608696 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we hoped for, we were pleased to find nursing home was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of C, which is a decent grade. When computing our nursing scores, we factor in both nursing hours and the skill levels of those nurses. This particular facility provided just 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient daily. This figure is far below the national average. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours per resident, this place performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has sufficient quality controls in place.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we scored is short-term care, which turned out to be this nursing home's worst category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F in this category, which is clearly concerning. Short-term care grades are typically used to measure a facility's rehabilitation services. To have good rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally need to offer better levels of highly skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Not surprisingly, we found that this place offers substantially less registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we considered the percentage of patients who were able to return home from this facility. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
