Registered Staff Hours
The primary reason this facility received a decent overall score is its excellent inspections in recent years. We awarded it one of our better scores in that category, with an A+. This is a notably better score than the facility's overall grade, which was decent but not in the elite range. Our inspection scores weigh several factors included in a facility's inspection report. One key criteria we weigh heavily is the quantity and severity of deficiencies. Facilities with higher scores in this area usually have few severe deficiencies. Although this facility had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were major deficiencies based on CMS' deficiency scale. A few minor deficiencies aren't something to panic about.
Long-term Care Quality
We also awarded this facility a strong score in long-term care. This nursing home earned a grade of B+ in this category, which is one of our better grades. In a long-term care environment, the facility's primary objective is to keep patients healthy and safe. This is different than skilled nursing or short-term care where the goal is to rehabilitate residents. Once we finished looking at the volume of care provided by nurses, we then looked at the nursing home's vaccination statistics. This facility vaccinated 87.78802 percent of its residents for pneumonia. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, at least this place was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is an impressively low figure.

As it turns out, this nursing home only earned a grade of D for its short-term care score, which is not a score to write home about. Our short-term care grades are based in part on the facility's quantity of skilled nursing services. This means a vast range of nursing services, ranging from registered nurses to physical and speech therapists, not to mention other forms of therapy. In this nursing home's case, we found that it provides less physical therapist and registered nurse hours per resident than the average facility. Finally, we looked at the number of patients who ultimately were able to return home from this nursing home. This nursing home didn't fare well here either. In fact, we found that just 4.6 percent of this facility's residents were able to return home.
Switching gears to our next category, we gave this nursing home a D in nursing. This is the facility's worst category rating. Naturally, this category hurt the nursing home's overall profile a bit. Our nursing score is based on many components, however, the most important consideration is the level of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility provided just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident per day. This is a very low total compared to most nursing homes. Finally, we also looked at some nursing quality measures in calculating our nursing ratings. This place performed well in terms of minimizing its residents' pressure ulcers and major falls.
