Registered Staff Hours
Although we didn't rate this facility favorably overall, we actually gave it an excellent grade in the category of inspections, where it received an A-. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating these inspection scores. One key factor is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more important than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. This facility received 5 deficiencies on its inspection report, but fortunately none were considered to be severe. This indicates that the government inspectors didn't consider any of these deficiencies to pose an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.
We awarded this facility a respectable grade in the area of nursing as well, with a grade of C. Our nursing score is largely tied to the facility's level of nurse staffing. This place provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a relatively low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, despite not having the highest total nursing hours, this facility performed admirably in the area of preventing major falls. This is typically an indicator that a facility has quality controls in place.

Long-term Care Quality
Unfortunately, this facility only received a D for its long-term care grade, which is well below average in this category. For long-term care residents, the primary objective is to maintain patients' quality of life and keep them safe. In addition to looking at the amount of care provided by aids and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This nursing home administered the vaccine to 100 percent of its patients. Surprisingly, this place was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Sadly, a few of its other scores in the category weren't as favorable as these.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility's least impressive category is short-term care, which is the final area we assessed. In this area, we awarded this nursing home a grade of D. Short-term care grades are meaningful for individuals seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation usually utilizes additional skilled nursing. Skilled nursing means a broad range of services, spanning from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. With a score in this range for this category, we were not surprised to discover this place was below average in many staffing areas we looked at. It offered significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per patient than most nursing homes. The last measure we assessed in this area is the number of patients that who were able to eventually return home from the nursing home. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 0 percent of its residents returning home.
