Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this facility received a decent overall score is its impeccable government inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our higher grades in that area, with an A. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Inspection ratings account for several factors included in a nursing home's inspection reports. One key criteria we rely on is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher grades in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. This facility received 6 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate threat to resident health or safety. We should note that deficiency-free inspections are rare in this industry.
We also gave this nursing home a decent score in the category of nursing care, with a grade of B-. Our nursing rating is primarily associated with the facility's nurse staffing. This place averages 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient per day, which is well below average. Lastly, while this place got dinged a bit for nursing hours per resident, it excelled in some of our quality measures. With fewer than five percent of its residents suffering from pressure ulcers, it fared remarkably well in this statistic.

Short-term Care Quality
The third area we looked at is short-term care. In that category, we gave this facility a solid grade of B-. In our short-term care rating, we strive to forge a fair measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as respiratory therapy. Unfortunately, we weren't able to track down information on registered nurse or physical therapy staffing for this nursing home. The last item we considered in this area is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that just 5.2 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home.
Long-term Care Quality
The last category we rated is long-term care. In this category, we awarded this facility a grade of C. If you are seeking services other than short-term rehabilitation, you should take a close look at each facility's long-term care ratings. After looking at the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we next considered the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.210526 percent of its patients for pneumonia, which is better than the average nursing home. Lastly, this nursing home was also able to limit hospitalizations. Indeed, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.
