Registered Staff Hours
This nursing home's best category grade came in the category of inspections. In that category, we awarded this nursing home a B+. It actually outperformed most nursing homes in this area. Our inspection scores account for a host of factors found on a nursing home's inspection reports. One of the most important criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with better scores in this category usually have very few of these severe deficiencies. This particular nursing home received 2 deficiencies on its inspection report. Overall, this is still a solid inspection report, but we'd always recommend looking into any deficiencies you find troubling.
Short-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also wanted to draw your attention to the fact that this nursing home was given favorable short-term care marks in this assessment. We gave them one of our more impressive scores in that area, with a grade of B. This proved to be the facility's second strongest grade. Our short-term care grade is typically used to measure a nursing home's performance with rehabilitation. In order to offer highly graded rehabilitation services, nursing homes generally must have better levels of skilled nursing services. These types of services include registered nurses, physical therapists, speech therapists and other licensed professionals. Fortunately, it looks like this facility has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these types of nurses. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who were able to return to the community from this facility. We found that 4.2 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

This nursing home also received a strong nursing grade. In fact, we awarded it a grade of B in that category, which is one of our better scores. When determining a nursing home's nursing rating, we assess the number of hours nurses commit to patients and the levels of training of the nurses. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also assessed several nursing quality-based metrics and this facility excelled in some of these areas. With less than five percent of its residents sustaining pressure ulcers, it performed as well as any place the nation in this category. This is generally a good indicator of quality nursing care. Pressure ulcers can typically be avoided by providing better nursing care, such as having a system of moving patients at least once a day.
Long-term Care Quality
The final area we assessed is long-term care. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category, which is an abysmal grade. This is certainly a significant disappointment. In a long-term care setting, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate patients. One of the data points we considered in addition to nursing hours is vaccinations. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the pneumonia vaccination to 94.96855 percent of its residents. To our surprise, this nursing home also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had just 0.02 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in the category were not as favorable as these.
