Registered Staff Hours
This facility's overall grade was bolstered by the fact that it has received favorable health inspections in recent years. We gave them a strong score in that category, with a B. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores weigh several factors, including deficiencies and substantiated complaints. You can find more information about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the government inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to cause an immediate risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
This facility's second best category was its nursing grade, where it received a grade of B-. Nursing ratings are mostly based on the facility's level of nurse staffing. This facility provides 0.4 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we are used to seeing. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility actually performed admirably in the metric of preventing major falls. This is often a good indicator that a place has sufficient quality controls in place.

Short-term Care Quality
This facility was given its third best category grade in the area of short-term care. We gave this nursing home a grade of B- in this area, which is an acceptable grade. Our short-term care grades are important for residents looking for rehabilitation. Rehabilitation generally requires higher levels of highly-skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes a wide range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Unfortunately, we found that this facility provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other facilities. The more important thing is determining what effect this had on quality of care. Finally, we looked at the number of residents that ultimately returned home from this nursing home. We found that 5.2 percent of this facility's patients were able to return home. This figure was quite a bit below the national average.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category is long-term care, which is the last area we looked at. In this area, we gave this facility a grade of just D. For prospective patients seeking a permanent residence rather than rehabilitation, long-term care grades are very important. After considering the amount of care provided by nurses and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This facility vaccinated 99.145294 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is higher than the vast majority of nursing homes. Surprisingly, this place also fared well at keeping its patients out of the hospital. It had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
