Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this nursing home received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave it one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in computing our inspection ratings. One of those factors is health deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of deficiencies is arguably more important than the number of deficiencies, as some end up being quite insignificant. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered severe. This tells you that CMS didn't consider any of the deficiencies to pose an imminent risk to resident safety or health. A few minor deficiencies shouldn't stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this nursing home a middle of the road score in the area of long-term care, where we gave it a B-. Our long-term care grades are based on a facility's quantity of nursing care. This includes a broad scope of personal care services, ranging from assistance with activities of daily living to routine healthcare services. After assessing the quantity of care provided by aids and other staff, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination records. We were pleased to learn that this facility vaccinated 98.091606 percent of its patients for pneumonia. This facility keeps its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Another strength of this nursing home is its favorable grade in nursing. We awarded them one of our better scores in that area, with an D. Our nursing score considers a number of datapoints. The most important variable is the number of hours nurses spent with patients. This nursing home offered only 0.4 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in determining our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
Short-term Care Quality
The last category we rated was short-term care, which was this facility's least impressive category. We awarded this facility a grade of D in that area. In computing our short-term care grades, we analyze a facility's levels of skilled nursing, which includes registered nurses, physical therapists speech therapists and other highly trained professionals. This rating is generally a useful measure of the nursing home's rehabilitation services. With its grade in this category, we were not stunned to discover that this facility is well below average in terms of its number of registered nurse and physical therapy hours offered to its residents based on the measures we assessed. Frankly, this was about what we expected here. The last item we considered in this area is the number of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 4.9 percent of its residents returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
