Registered Staff Hours
While this nursing home's overall score was not a highlight, it actually really excelled in the category of inspections. In fact, we awarded it an A for that category, which is one of our best scores. Perhaps the most critical factor we look at in calculating our inspection grades is deficiencies. These deficiencies are found on a facility's recent inspection reports. It is typically best to avoid facilities that had a long list of deficiencies. This nursing home was hit with 4 deficiencies on its inspection report, but we were relieved to see that none were considered to be severe deficiencies. This means that the inspectors didn't consider any of the deficiencies an immediate threat to resident safety or health. A couple minor deficiencies are not necessarily the end of the world.
Short-term Care Quality
This nursing home's next most favorable area is short-term care. In that area, we gave this nursing home a grade of C. Our short-term care grade is often used to gauge a facility's rehabilitation services. To have high-end rehabilitation services, facilities generally must provide higher levels of highly skilled nursing. Skilled nursing includes registered nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists and other highly skilled individuals. Unfortunately, we found that this place provided fewer registered nurse and physical therapist hours per resident than most other nursing homes. The last datapoint we looked at in this area is the percentage of patients that ultimately were able to return home from the nursing home. We found that just 5 percent of this facility's residents returned home.

Long-term Care Quality
Sadly, this facility's next best score is long-term care. However, with a grade of D in this category, it still fared somewhat poorly. For prospective residents looking for a permanent place to live as opposed to rehabilitation, long-term care is a very important category. In addition to considering the volume of care provided by aids and other staff, we analyzed the number of residents vaccinated for pneumonia. This nursing home vaccinated 94.70588 percent of its residents, which is higher than the average nursing home. To our surprise, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has less hospitalizations than many nursing homes. Unfortunately, some of its other scores in this category were not as favorable as these.
The next category we rated was nursing. Unfortunately, we gave it a lowly F for this category, which is a very poor grade. Our nursing rating analyzes many subcategories, but the paramount consideration is the level of nurse hours spent with patients. This place averaged only 0.3 hours of nursing care per patient on a daily basis. This is well below average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality measures in determining our nursing grades. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these areas to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
