Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its decent overall grade, we gave this nursing home a grade of A- for our nursing rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall score. Our nursing score analyzes quite a few datapoints, but the paramount one is the number of nurse hours spent with patients. This nursing home averages 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This facility performed very well when it comes to minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be good indicators of the quality of nursing care.
Short-term Care Quality
Another one of this nursing home's more impressive category grades came in the area of short-term care. In that area, we awarded this facility a grade of B+. It actually performed better than most facilities in this area. Our short-term care ratings are based on a facility's quantity of highly-skilled highly skilled professionals. This includes a broad spectrum of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and occupational therapists, as well as other types of therapy. Fortunately, it looks like this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, based on the information they provided, they do not appear to employ physical therapists. The last statistic we assessed in this category is the number of patients that ultimately returned home from the nursing home. We found that 4.8 percent of this nursing home's residents returned home as opposed to remaining at the facility on a permanent basis.

Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's second worse category is long-term care, where it earned just a D in that area. This is a relatively poor score. In a long-term care environment, the nursing home's primary objective is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to considering the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. Thankfully, this nursing home provided the vaccine to 97.36842 percent of its patients, which is an above average total. To our surprise, this place also keeps its patients out of the hospital. Indeed, it had only 0.03 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days. Sadly, a few of its other scores in this category weren't as favorable as these.
Moving on our last category of inspections, this facility received an F in this area. This score was detrimental to this nursing home's overall score. For nursing homes that received this bad of an inspection grade, we would scrutinize any severe deficiencies on its inspection report. This nursing home had a category J or K deficiency, which are among the worst categories of deficiencies. Finally, we would like to point out that this nursing home received large government fines recently of more than $100,000. This typically indicates that a facility's bad track record has been an issue for more than one year.
