Registered Staff Hours
This facility's overall score was propped up by the fact that it has received favorable inspections in recent years. We awarded them one of our better scores in this area, with a B+. This is a much better grade than the facility's overall grade. Inspection scores are based on several datapoints found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Nursing homes that excel in this category typically have very few deficiencies on those reports. Most importantly, these nursing homes should not have any severe deficiencies which are associated with risks to patient safety. This place was hit with 8 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be major deficiencies. This means that the government inspectors did not deem any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Another one of this nursing home's stronger areas was in the category of nursing care. In that area, we gave this facility a grade of B. Our nursing grade is primarily tied to a facility's level of nurse staffing. This particular nursing home provided 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident per day. Finally, our nursing grades also factor in quality-based assessments, such as avoiding major falls. This nursing home performed well in this area. Avoiding major falls is typically a good indicator that a nursing home has reliable quality controls in place. Major falls can generally be avoided if more nurses aids and better safety protocols are in place.

The next most favorable area we awarded this nursing home in any category came in the area of long-term care, where we awarded it a grade of C. In calculating our long-term care grades, we look at the personal care offered to a nursing home's patients.

This nursing home vaccinated 99.376945 percent of its residents against pneumonia, which is higher than most nursing homes. This facility also excelled at keeping its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.
Short-term Care Quality
The final area we analyzed was short-term care, which is a weak spot for this nursing home. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in the area of short-term care. In determining our short-term care scores, we scrutinize the nursing home's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists respiratory therapists and other highly skilled individuals. This category is more often than not a reliable measure of the facility's rehabilitation. Not surprisingly, we found that this nursing home provides far less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Lastly, we looked at the number of patients that eventually returned home from this nursing home. This facility didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
