Registered Staff Hours
While we didn't give this facility a good overall grade, we did give it a relatively strong grade in the category of inspections, where it received a B+. Inspection scores are based on several pieces of information found on the a nursing home's recent inspection reports. Deficiencies are an important item to look for on these reports. You should especially avoid facilities with severe deficiencies associated with risks to resident well being. While this place had a few deficiencies on its inspection report, none were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't the end of the world.

In addition, we also would like to point out that this nursing home was given positive short-term care marks in this assessment. We awarded them one of our higher grades in this category, with a grade of B. This turned out to be the facility's second best grade. In our short-term care category, we attempt to forge a fair barometer for rehabilitation. In this process, we assess the facility's levels of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as occupational therapy. It does not appear that this nursing home submitted registered nurse or physical therapist staffing data. The last datapoint we assessed in this category is the number of residents that eventually returned home from the nursing home. We found that 6.5 percent of this nursing home's patients returned home as opposed to remaining at the nursing home on a permanent basis.

We awarded this facility a grade of just D for our long-term care rating. This is not a very good score. When facilities receive a score in this range in this category it generally means the facility did not perform well in our quality measures relating to patient care. After assessing the volume of care provided by nurses aids and other staff, we then analyzed the nursing home's vaccination statistics. Candidly, we were a bit alarmed this facility vaccinated 75.1004 percent of its residents for pneumonia, which is several points less than the national average. Surprisingly, this nursing home was actually able to limit hospitalizations. With just 0.01 hospitalizations per one thousand long-term resident days, this nursing home has fewer hospitalizations than most nursing homes. This is its best feature in this category.
The last area we scored was nursing, which was a low point for this facility. We awarded this facility a grade of D in our nursing category.
