Registered Staff Hours
To go along with its relatively modest overall score, we awarded this facility an A+ for our inspections rating. This score is far more impressive than the facility's overall grade. We weigh several aspects of a nursing home's inspection report in determining our inspection scores. One critical factor is health deficiencies. It should be noted that the severity of the deficiencies is usually more meaningful than the number of deficiencies, as some deficiencies can be quite minor. Although this nursing home had some deficiencies on its government inspection report, none of them were severe based on CMS' scale. Finally, this facility had no substantiated complaints this year from residents, which is always a good sign.
Long-term Care Quality
Additionally, we awarded this facility a grade of B in our long-term care category. This happens to be one of our higher grades. For long-term care residents, the primary goal is to maintain residents' quality of life and keep them safe. One of the criteria we considered on top of nursing hours was vaccinations. This facility provided the pneumonia vaccination to 82.58929 percent of its residents. Although its vaccination rate was a bit lower than we like to see, this facility was able to limit hospitalizations. In fact, it had less than one hospitalization per 1,000 long-term resident days, which is a remarkably low number.

Short-term Care Quality
Sadly, this nursing home only earned a D for its short-term care rating, which is not one of our better scores. In our short-term care category, we try to create a sound measure for rehabilitation services. In this process, we assess a nursing home's offerings of highly-skilled nursing services, including both registered nurses and physical therapy, as well as speech therapy. Considering its grade in this category, we were not surprised to discover that this nursing home was well below average in terms of its quantity of physical therapy and registered nurse hours offered to its residents based on the figures we assessed. Honestly, this was what we expected to find. The final measure we considered in this category is the percentage of patients who who were able to eventually return home from the facility. This facility struggled quite a bit in this area as well, with just 4.6 percent of its residents returning home.
This nursing home's worst category was nursing, which is the final category we analyzed. Sadly, it received a lowly F in this category. In spite of some acceptable grades in other categories, this grade is nevertheless of a concern so we would like to to point it out. The nursing rating weighs quite a few factors, however, the main one is the number of nurse hours per patient per week. This facility offered just 0.3 hours of nursing care per resident on a daily basis. This statistic is significantly below the national average. Lastly, we also assessed some nursing quality-based metrics in calculating our nursing scores. This place fared well in the area of avoiding pressure ulcers and major falls. We consider these metrics to be reliable indicators of the quality of nursing care.
