Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its impeccable inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our higher scores in that category, with a grade of A+. This is a much better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection ratings take several factors into consideration, including deficiencies, substantiated complaints and federal fines. You can learn more about each of these issues by reviewing copies of nursing homes' inspection reports. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its report, none of them were serious based on CMS' deficiency scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is an excellent sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we also would like to note that this nursing home was awarded impressive long-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our more impressive grades in this category, with a B. This proved to be the facility's second highest grade. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it typically means it's well-staffed and is a quality place to reside on a permanent basis. Once we assessed the volume of nursing care, we then analyzed the facility's vaccination record. This nursing home vaccinated 99.10714 percent of its patients against pneumonia, which is what we like to see. Pneumonia is often a dangerous health condition for nursing home residents so we strongly prefer when a nursing home does not leave its residents vulnerable. Clearly, this facility is doing something right in this area as it also excelled at keeping its residents out of the hospital. In fact, it had only 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, which is an impressively low number.

Lastly, we considered the percentage of residents who were able to return home from this facility. We found that 6.7 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home. This figure was actually well below average.
The last area we rated was nursing, which was this nursing home's worst category. Unfortunately, we gave it an F for this category, which is obviously concerning. We weighed the skill-level of nurses working for the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses worked with patients, in determining our rating in this area. This place provided only 0 hours of nursing care per resident each day. This is an alarmingly low total. Lastly, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing scores.
