Registered Staff Hours
The main reason this ended up being a decent nursing home is that it earned an elite inspection grade. Its inspection grade was far better than its overall grade. In our inspections category, we gave it an A+. We take several aspects of a facility's inspection report into consideration in calculating our inspection ratings. One of those factors is deficiencies. You should keep in mind that the severity of the deficiencies is arguably more meaningful than the quantity of deficiencies, as some deficiencies are relatively insignificant. This facility was hit with 2 deficiencies on its inspection report, but none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This indicates that the inspectors did not deem any of the deficiencies to be an immediate risk to resident health or safety. A couple of minor deficiencies should not stop you from considering a nursing home.
Long-term Care Quality
This facility's next best category ended up being its long-term care grade, where it was awarded a grade of B-. In computing our long-term care scores, we analyze the assistance with daily living offered to the nursing home's residents. Once we concluded our assessment of the quantity of nursing care, we then looked at the facility's vaccination data. We were pleased to learn that this nursing home vaccinated 99.27536 percent of its patients for pneumonia. Lastly, this facility was also able to limit hospitalizations. It had only 0.01 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care rating. This is not an impressive grade. Our short-term care grades are believed to be most meaningful for folks needing rehabilitation from their nursing home. Rehabilitation typically utilizes more skilled nursing. This includes not only nursing, but also physical and speech therapy, as well as other types of therapy. With a grade of this caliber for this category, we weren't shocked to discover this facility was well below average in multiple staffing metrics we focus on. The nursing home supplied significantly fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most facilities. The last metric we assessed in this area is the number of residents who eventually returned home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this metric as well, with just 5 percent of its patients returning home. Unfortunately, this was quite a bit below average.
The last area we graded was nursing, is this facility's worst category. We awarded this nursing home a D in that area. Our nursing grade looks at the nursing home's nurse staffing levels. We weigh both the levels of training of the nurses as well as the quantity of hours spent with patients. This nursing home provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a much lower figure than we are used to seeing. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing grades. This nursing home fared well in terms of minimizing its residents' major falls and pressure ulcers. Many consider these areas to be good measures of the quality of nursing care.
