Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall grade is its excellent government inspections in recent years. We gave them one of our better scores in that category, with an A-. This is a notably better grade than the facility's overall score, which was decent but certainly not elite. Inspection grades account for a host of factors included in a nursing home's inspection report. One of the most important criteria we look at is the number and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area typically have few severe deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none of the deficiencies were considered to be severe deficiencies. This tells you that the inspectors did not consider any of the deficiencies to create an immediate risk to patient safety or health. The fact that the deficiencies were relatively minor made us feel better about this inspection report.
Short-term Care Quality
This facility also was given a favorable score in our short-term care category. We awarded this nursing home an above average grade of B in this category. Our short-term care ratings are critical for residents seeking rehabilitation. Rehabilitation typically mandates more skilled nursing services. Skilled nursing includes a vast spectrum of services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and respiratory therapists, as well as other forms of therapy. Fortunately, it appear that this nursing home has registered nurses on staff. Not every nursing home employs these skilled professionals. On the other hand, according to the data this nursing home provided, it does not look like the facility employs physical therapists. Finally, we assessed the number of residents who who were able to eventually return home from this facility. We found that 0 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home.

Next, we looked at the nursing category where we awarded this nursing home a grade of B-, which is a decent grade. We weighed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, as well as the quantity of time those nurses were with residents, in computing our rating in this category. This place provides 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient each day. This is a lower figure than we were hoping for. Despite having low quantities of nursing care, this facility surprisingly excelled in some of the quality measures we looked at. It performed well in the area of avoiding major falls and pressure ulcers. We consider these areas to be indicators of the quality of nursing care. In some cases, the quality of nursing care is as important as the quantity of hours of care offered.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's least impressive category was long-term care, which is the final area we scored. In this category, we awarded this nursing home a D. Facilities that don't fare well in this category often do not provide as much nursing care and also may be lagging in some of the areas of routine medical care we looked at. In addition to looking at the volume of care provided by nurses and other staff, we looked at the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. We discovered that this nursing home gave the vaccine to just 81.41593 percent of its patients, which is somewhat concerning. To our surprise, this place was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.03 hospitalizations per 1,000 long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than the average nursing home. This was its best feature in this category.
