Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall grade was not a highlight, it actually received a very good grade in the area of inspections. We gave it a grade of B+ for that category, which is one of our better scores. Inspection scores are tied to many items found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are a key thing to look for on these inspections. Most importantly, you should avoid facilities that have severe deficiencies linked to risks to resident well being. This particular nursing home had just a single deficiency on its inspection report and it was not one deemed to pose a threat to patient health or safety. Despite this deficiency, this place still had a relatively favorable report.
Long-term Care Quality
This nursing home's long-term care rating is one of its higher features. The nursing home was awarded a C in this area. In the category of long-term care, we analyze the amount of care provided by a facility, as opposed to more medically-intensive services. On top of looking at the quantity of care provided by nurses and other staff, we analyzed the percentage of residents vaccinated against pneumonia. This facility gave the vaccine to 91.111115 percent of its residents. This is a few points below what we expected but still a respectable percentage. Nevertheless, this place was able to keep its patients out of the hospital. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per one thousand long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low figure.

We gave this facility just a D for our short-term care grade. This is not one of our better scores. In the category of short-term care, we attempt to qualify indicators of a nursing home's rehabilitation services. We look at a nursing home's skilled nursing services, including the ones performed by registered nurses and physical and occupational therapists. With a score this poor for this category, we were not stunned to find that this facility was below average in multiple staffing areas we focus on. The facility offered far fewer physical therapist and registered nurse hours per patient than most nursing homes. The final metric we considered in this category is the number of residents who returned home from the facility. This nursing home struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 5.3 percent of its patients returning home. This was quite a bit below average.
The final category we scored was nursing, which was this facility's weakest area. We gave this nursing home a grade of D in that category. We analyzed the licensure of nurses at the nursing home, in addition to the quantity of hours those nurses spent with patients, in determining our score in this category. This facility averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient daily. Finally, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings.
